“On June 29, 2006, less than a year after [legal counsel to Vice President Dick Cheney, David] Addington called the effort to revive the Geneva Conventions an ‘abomination,’ the Supreme Court ruled emphatically [in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld ] that the Bush Administration had to abide by these [Geneva Convention] laws in its war on terror.”
