What War Crimes?

Louise Arbour, UN high commissioner for human rights, indicated yesterday that the actions of Israel and Hezbollah constitute war crimes and those responsible could face prosecution. Given that the US government is strongly backing Israel and encouraging its attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure one might expect this to make it into NPR's Morning Edition. But there was nothing of this in the news. It might be helpful for NPR to cover the Geneva Convention sections that are relevant to war crimes accusations so that listeners could decide what they think. If you are interested, here is an article that covers this subject and is worth reading (cited by Juan Cole today.)
