U.S. To Sanction International Criminal Court

Today, John Bolton will deliver a speech before the Federalist Society -- famous for vetting conservative Supreme Court nominees -- that will recommend the United States sanction the International Criminal Court (ICC). The U.S. was a signatory to the court, which has prosecuted war crimes since 1998, but has since withdrawn is signature. Now, the court is investigating war crimes in Afghanistan, something that Bolton believes would put the U.S. in a difficult position. To discuss, we’re joined by Richard Dicker, Director of the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch. Dicker led the year campaign to establish the ICC.
