    The fact of Charles Taylor, Jr.'s having been born in America has enabled a U.S. court to indict him.

    See?

    Having a definable legal status can help the judicial process along.

    No doubt some would accord him the protection of the Geneva Convention...

    The US doesn't torture people, they send them to third world countries and let them do it.

    And to hear Craig Murray, the UK is right there collaborating with the US.

    Dick Marty, the Swiss legislator who led the inquiry, lacked the investigatory powers to compel and compile legally watertight evidence. But his dossier leaves no doubt about the archipelago of clandestine "black sites" run by the Central Intelligence Agency, of "enhanced" interrogation techniques, and of collusion by countries including the UK and Germany, Poland and Spain, Sweden, Turkey and much of the Balkans.

    At first I was wondering how the hell we are trying for acts committed outside the US but then...

    This defendant is being prosecuted under a statute that criminalizes torture and provides U.S. courts jurisdiction to hear cases involving acts of torture committed outside the United States if the offender is a U.S. national or is present in the United States, regardless of nationality.
