Letter: US case rings hollow

September 9, 2013 

The failure of the United States Senate to ratify the International Criminal Court treaty leaves the posturing about Syria by senators and the United States government hollow. The double standard of the United States of America wanting to hold the rest of the world accountable while denying accountability is untenable.

When the International Criminal Court treaty is ratified then American war criminals like Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama can be held accountable for their war crimes.
