Andrew Sullivan asks a very relevant question

with the help of Rude Pundit about those captured US soldiers:
Andrew Sullivan | The Daily Dish: The Captured Soldiers: "All we can do apart from searching for them is pray for them. But Rude Pundit has some thoughts about what we'll say if we discover that they have been tortured. Money quote:

"What will our government do? What could it do? Could it condemn the actions as not abiding by the Geneva Conventions? Could it call the actions 'torture'? Could it demand accountability? Could it demand that the soldiers be treated as POWs? Could it simply say, 'Well, we don't do that shit ... anymore'?"

No it couldn't. Pray for the safe rescue of the soldiers - and for the president who abandoned Geneva."
