Fact of the Week

Fact of the Week

Officials in the Bush administration have privately confirmed that the administration's objections to the International Criminal Court stem from fears that American leaders could face charges. In its public statements, the administration has mentioned only the possibility of American soldiers facing charges on political grounds.

Both the private and public objections, of course, ignore that the International Criminal court allows the country of any accused individual from trying that person through its judicial system and system of jurisprudence.
