Keeping the Little Fish

So the International Criminal Court is going after a head of state, one President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of Sudan. Can you imagine Bush or even Obama being prosecuted for war crimes by the ICC? There have been plenty to choose from in the way of war crimes since the ICC opened its doors in 2002. One very large war crime jumps to mind almost immediately but I have heard nary a word about that from anything like the ICC. But as the big O likes to say we need to move forward and not look back.


PARIS — Judges at the International Criminal Court ordered the arrest Wednesday of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir of Sudan, charging him with war crimes and crimes against humanity for a concerted government campaign against civilians. They did not include the charge of genocide requested by the prosecutor.
