Q: Iraqi TV has shown what appear to be American POWs, and also what appear to be American dead. Your reaction?
GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: The POWs I expect to be treated humanely, and just like we're treating the prisoners that we have captured humanely. If not, the people who mistreat the prisoners will be treated as war criminals.
