Justice: U.S. wrong in criminal court
I am saddened by the Bush Administrations unsigning of the treaty which establishes the International Criminal Court.
In doing so, the United States is turning its back on millions of victims of genocide, torture, terrorism, and other crimes against humanity. The ICC will begin to prosecute humanitys worst criminals in July with or without the U.S. But the unsigning signals a basic disregard for the principles of international justice that could undermine both the current war on terrorism and future international frameworks.
In the wake of Septembers terrorist attacks, the United States can best demonstrate its commitment to fighting such atrocities by supporting the international structures of justice.
