59. Not so confusing
There simply is NO such power "inherent in the president" to set aside international treaty (Geneva Conventions), which is the sole province of the U.S. Senate. See Article III

This was a deliberate but fatally flawed attempt to create a presumptive legal defense in order to prevent Bush from being hauled before the Hague. One wonders whether NATO commandos will now parachute into Crawford to take him into custody, like they swooped in on Pinochet.
