In a potential coup for human rights the world over, the Pentagon has decided to adhere to the minimum standards of the Geneva Conventions (first ratified in the mid-20th century) to detainees in Guantanamo and elsewhere.

This statement (read the memo) comes two weeks after a Supreme Court decision ordering the Bush Administration to follow the guidelines of Article 3 of the Convention.

Now, if only the Supreme Court can decide that Global Warming is a reality and demand the ratification of the Kyoto Protocol (signed in 1998 by Al Gore, but never ratified), the U.S. will really be on its way to seeing eye to eye with the rest of the modern world.
