Rumsfeld's Tokyo Torture

You may remember General Pace's disagreement with Rummy last month at a press conference about US soldiers obligation if they saw Iraqi soldiers abusing detainees . Well yesterday Pace attempted to clear it up....
When General Pace was asked again on Thursday by reporters in Bahrain about the exchange, he said for the first time that he and Mr. Rumsfeld had not really disagreed at all. General Pace said he was talking about the obligations of American soldiers in a war zone like Iraq or Afghanistan; Mr. Rumsfeld, he said, was talking about the obligations of Americans in a nonhostile setting like, say, Tokyo.(emphasis mine)
Torture in Tokyo???
