Should there be a prisoner abuse commission to ensure the United States is following human rights laws?

yes, and it should be run by Germany's Nuremberg International Criminal Court / War Crimes Tribunal

There actually is!
The US just don't give a f*ck!
If any smaller country tried to get away with stuff like that they'd be severly sanctioned (or worse) by the UN.
But George Bush has promised that, should any american soldier be brought to The Hague to be trialled for war crimes, he would invade my little country.
That would be the day I take up terrorism, by the way.

Of course there should. If for no other reason than to stop RobManChu from having to resort to terrorism.
But seriously, yes, there should.

Of course. No country is above the law.

Yes, definitely. The U.S. must follow human rights laws as well as the Geneva Conventions when it is dealing with POWs... including al-Qa'idah and Taliban fighters (what the U.S. government refers to as "terrorists")... they're POWs... that's what they are... it is semantics to call them anything different.
And to deny them the status of POWs because they are fighting for a non-governmental entity is wrong and ignorant of the Islamic paradigm of identity formation and ideals of allegience (which must be given to God and His religion alone).
The idea that one's identity must be based on one's (secular) nationality and allegience given to a secular nation-state is a 18-19th Century European development and completely foreign to the Islamic paradigm... and to say that Muslims must adhere to such a foreign paradigm is wrong.
