10. But the law of the land IS the Geneva Conventions according to
US Code, Title 18, Section 2441 entitled War Crimes Act. If you take the Presidential Findings legal responsibilities, one of the key ones being:

(5) A finding may not authorize any action that would violate
the Constitution or any statute of the United States.

it seems to me that a Presidential Finding the contravenes the Geneva Conventions is a finding that violates US Code Title 18, Section 2441 and therefore violates a statute of the United States.

Here is the link to US Code, Title 18, Section 2441:
