Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So could Cheney be tried under Geneva?  Or only within the USA?  Could he be extradited to (say) Iraq? If Obama joined ICC could he be extradited to The Hague even if his actions took place prior to joining? Is Gitmo US sovereign territory or is it legally part of Cuba?

I would be interested in reading what legal remedies are available to someone who was tortured by the USA under Cheney authority - provided they have the resources and support required to follow it up...  Sometimes these things are best done by individual court action so that accusations of partisanship cannot be applied...
