Unreal. Obama May Allow US Soldiers to be Tried in the Hague

Unreal. Team Obama may allow US soldiers to be tried in the Hague for war crimes.
The Wall Street Journal reported, via Jihad Watch:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed “great regret” in August that the U.S. is not a signatory to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This has fueled speculation that the Obama administration may reverse another Bush policy and sign up for what could lead to the trial of Americans for war crimes in The Hague.

The ICC’s chief prosecutor, though, has no intention of waiting for Washington to submit to the court’s authority. Luis Moreno Ocampo says he already has jurisdiction—at least with respect to Afghanistan.

Because Kabul in 2003 ratified the Rome Statute—the ICC’s founding treaty—all soldiers on Afghan territory, even those from nontreaty countries, fall under the ICC’s oversight, Mr. Ocampo told me. And the chief prosecutor says he is already conducting a “preliminary examination” into whether NATO troops, including American soldiers, fighting the Taliban may have to be put in the dock.

“We have to check if crimes against humanity, war crimes or genocide have been committed in Afghanistan,” Mr. Ocampo told me. “There are serious allegations against the Taliban and al Qaeda and serious allegations about warlords, even against some who are connected with members of the government.” Taking up his inquiry of Allied soldiers, he added, “there are different reports about problems with bombings and there are also allegations about torture.”

It was clear who the targets of these particular inquiries are but the chief prosecutor shied away from spelling it out.

Asked repeatedly whether the examination of bombings and torture allegations refers to NATO and U.S. soldiers, Mr. Ocampo finally stated that “we are investigating whoever commits war crimes, including the group you mentioned.”

We need to bring our boys home. This is a setup, and it will not end well.

 Quoting: snark


Anybody think the mid level officer corps (Forget about the generals. They're politicians.) will stand for their people being tried in an international court?

There already seems to be some dissention in the ranks. I heard two people who claimed to be officers call into Rush's show earlier this week, breaking protocol, to express their dissatisfaction with Obama trying the three Blackwater former SEALS for assault.

One guy said that the speculation around the campfire in DC is that these guys are being made an example of as payback for Blackwater breaking Obama's unreasonable rules of engagement in the Somali pirate Maersk rescue operation.

I personally think the US soldiers should be accountable for any war crimes committed. Don't abuse the people you have power over, and you won't have anything to fear.

Better yet, just bring home the soldiers and get the fuck out of policing the world!

The soldiers' Commander-in-Chief is ultimately responsible for anything they do in the field or while under command. So, he, too, should be tried in the Hague. As you said, "Don't abuse the people you have power over, and you won't have anything to fear."

People you have power over? Are you out of your fucking mind? You won't have anything to fear from the fanatical brainwashed murderers that swore to kill you?

You are the biggest fucktard in history. I wish you'd go to Pakistan and declare how much love you have for the asshole Taliban. They'll cut your head off to show their power over you and and giggle. What a loser!!! OMG!
