     He's probably referring to the executive order signed on 7 Feb,
2002.  In it, W claims the authority to set aside the Geneva conventions
for Taliban and al-Quaeda prisoners, thereby allowing them to be 
tortured and/or mistreated in other ways.  The legal justification for
this order is somewhat dubious.
