It is truly amazing how people cannot wrap they're brains around the concept that the POW status does not apply to terrorists. Never was meant to, never will apply. Geneva Conventions protections DON'T apply to terrorists. Pure and simple, and that is a fact. In fact, here is International Committee of the Red Cross web page for you with the treaty text. When you read the definition of combatants, you find that terrorists do not fit the definition, nor do they're organizations match that as a 'high contracting power' that signed the treaty. In fact, because they are not nations, the cannot qualify for any protections under the Geneva Conventions unless another Convention takes place, and treaty ratified and signed that specifically protects them from torture. Its amazing how that point is ignored completely by the anti-torture crowd.
