This Day In History

Jan. 26, 1998: Denying he had an affair with a White House intern, President Bill Clinton tells reporters: “I want you to listen to me. I’m going to say this again. I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”

Jan. 27, 1998: First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton appears on NBC’s “Today” show and claims that a “vast right-wing conspiracy” is behind the allegations against her husband.

Also on this day in history, George W. Bush announces in the State of the Union 2003 that Iraq has tried to obtain yellow cake uranium from Africa, known to be false at the time.

On this day in 2002, Bush announced that detainees in the "war on terror" would not be considered POWs - a clear violation of the Geneva Convention.

What country or flag are the terrorists fighting under?

Charles D said...

None. However, that does not exempt the US from the provisions of the Geneva Convention or the UN Charter both of which were duly ratified by the Congress and under Article VI of the Constitution "...all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding."
