US seeks war crimes exemption extension

From ABC News in Australia, of course. Just try to find the story in the American media.

The measure is likely to face misgivings after revelations that US troops abused prisoners in Iraq.
"Could you please renew our torture subscription for another year, please? We're still perfecting our techniques and need to work out a few bugs. Like those pesky digital cameras..."
