From Reuters:

"The Obama administration has issued a ringing defense of the Geneva Conventions on the conduct of war, which officials of the Bush White House had said did not apply to their struggle against al Qaeda....U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the conventions adopted 60 years ago made the United States stronger, not weaker, in combating terrorism because it gave a moral edge....'In recent years, some have called the Geneva Conventions outdated as we face an enemy that is loyal to no state, that hides among civilians and that routinely violates the laws our own forces are obliged to uphold,' Rice said"
