Officer: U.S. troops untrained in Geneva ConventionHuh? I reprimand my four year old when he treats people poorly.... WTF is this article trying to suggest?
Washington — Six U.S. soldiers facing courts-martial in connection with mistreatment of detainees at an Iraqi prison did not receive in-depth training on the Geneva Conventions, which govern the handling of captives, a military spokeswoman said Friday.
Some military officials privately said even without training U.S. soldiers should have known better.Well.... duh! But why would these officials say this *privately*?
“There’s a lot of money to pay for this that doesn’t have to be U.S. taxpayer money, and it starts with the assets of the Iraqi people…and on a rough recollection, the oil revenues of that country could bring between $50 and $100 billion over the course of the next two or three years…We’re dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon.” -Paul Wolfowitz
