This is the first I've heard of this! And if true, reason for considerable concern!

Here's the thing. The U.S. can not complain abut any other nation flouting international law, international treaties and norms, if she blatantly flouts them herself to, it seems, protect alleged war criminals from international justice?

Just as you can't be half pregnant! You cannot pick and choose what agreed international law or internationally recognised border, you recognise or abide by!

It's either the whole enchilada/dog's breakfast and work from within to achieve reform! Or none at all! Or indeed, a place in the U.N. or its security council!
