and Mr Chip even you say they were only thinking/plotting there is no proof that they have actually done any of these things

1. what happened to the moral high ground - two wrongs don't make a right et. If you want to be seen as the ethical force then your troops have to behave ethically. The Geneva convention was drafted to prevent this sort of behavious and renaming these prisoners of war something else does not ecxempt America from behaving in accordance with it.

2. And treating people this way because they might possibly have thought about committing an act of terrorism is an outrage -

these are people and they deserve to be treated as such. Treating them badly dehumanises those doing it as much as the victims.

Before you suggest treating them like shit is acceptable I suggest you read 'If this is a man' by Primo Levi
