 of international law. A Spanish judge has issued arrest warrants for three American soldiers accused of killing a Spanish civilian in the early days of the Iraq war. This despite the fact that these charges have been dismissed twice and an investigation also cleared them.

Even the International Criminal Court recognizes that a country’s own investigation takes primacy over legal actions by other nations.
