"lawyers who dispense bad advice about law of armed conflict, and whose advice predictably leads to the death of mistreatment of prisoners, are war criminals, chargeable with potentially capital offenses... cute lawyerly evasions and gimmicks, so commonly indulged in other areas of the law, will not be tolerated on fundamental questions of law of armed conflict relating to the protection of civilians and detainees. -- law professor and human rights advocate Scott Horton
