Army manual to skip Geneva Convention rule

Remember how the Bushies kept telling us that the torture at Abu Ghraib was just a few isolated instances caused by "a few bad apples"?

Well, now it's more than a few bad apples. It's the whole orchard. Apparently it's now official policy.

According to a piece in Sunday's Los Angeles Times, they are rewriting the Army Field Manual to deliberately exclude the parts about the Geneva Conventions and how you're not supposed to torture people.

The sky's the limit, folks. Torture is now U.S. military policy. God bless America. Wouldn't Jesus be proud?

Ummm, so does this mean that they'll free Lynndie England?
