May 19, 2004      Torture in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere

       Lieutenant-Colonel Tucker Mansager tells reporters that the media will not be permitted access to secret detention facilities in Afghanistan, claiming that doing so would violate the prisoners' rights under the Geneva Conventions. However in February 2002, the administration had denied “prisoner of war” status to all Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters captured in Afghanistan (see February 7, 2002) on grounds they were “illegal combatants.” Since then, the US has maintained that these prisoners are not protected by the Conventions. Nonetheless, Mansager explains: “Part of ... spirit [of the Geneva Conventions] is to ensure that the persons under confinement are not subject to any kind of exploitation. It is the coalition's position that allowing media into the facilities would compromise that protection.” [Reuters, 5/19/2004]
