Treatment of Taliban Raises Concerns, Europeans Say

ERLIN, Jan. 23 — The fury in Europe over the treatment of the Taliban prisoners in Cuba, European analysts and diplomats said today, stems from what appears to be another example of the United States bending international law to suit its own purposes.

The decision by the Pentagon to keep the detainees in Cuba, out of the jurisdiction of American courts, and not to classify them prisoners of war under the Geneva Convention has troubled America's closest allies, making it look as if the United States is "making up the rules as it goes along," said a West European ambassador here.
