I'm not understanding how anyone could consider this to qualify as "push[ing] the rules to their limits". The emails were never archived, which was required by law. PERIOD. If she'd used her personal email, but used Google backup or something* and dumped the archive to IT on her way out, that would be "push[ing] the rules".

* We'll ignore how insecure that may be.

You act as if the Geneva conventions are a black and white issue, but the people fighting our troops are not soldiers of any UN recognized state-- or recognized by any individual state, for that matter. Also, the rules apply to any signatory nation, even when in conflict with a non-signatory, but only if the latter agrees to accept and apply the conventions. I'd say hacking off the heads of nearly every civilian and POW that comes into their hands as an implicit non-acceptance, and definite non-application. Thus, it's difficult to apply all the rules. I also need to point out if they indeed are soldiers, then the act of putting them in Gitmo itself is, as a POW camp, perfectly legal. Alleged torture is, of course, not.
