After indicting the president of Sudan for war crimes in Darfur, the prosecutor is weighing an investigation of Israeli officials for alleged war crimes in Gaza.
This is precisely the kind of politicized, expansionist role many of us feared the International Criminal Court would play. Early word from the Obama administration has been that cooperating with the ICC is part of improving America’s image abroad.
Let’s hope the Obama administration remembers how to say “no” to the politics of this, and other international courts.
