HOSTAGES....Newsday reports that "the U.S. military is holding dozens of Iraqis as bargaining chips to put pressure on their wanted relatives to surrender."

BeatBushBlog, written by a Chicago lawyer, cites chapter and verse to show that this violates the Geneva Conventions.

It's time for the Bush administration to make up its mind: do the conventions apply to Iraq or not? We could stand to see a little leadership on this issue from the Oval Office.
