‘The ICC Is Already Dead to Us’... Withdrawal over War on Terror Probe -- John Bolton
9-10-18, WASHINGTON, DC – National Security Advisor John Bolton announced on Monday that the United States is formally rejecting the “fundamentally illegitimate” International Criminal Court(ICC).
The ICC declaration is the latest in Trump administration actions to remove the United States from international entanglements that do not benefit America or its citizens, including withdrawal from the Paris climate change agreement and ending membership in the United Nations Human Rights Council.
“To protect American service members from the ICC, in 2002 Congress passed the American Service Members’ Protection Act, or ASPA, which some have branded ‘The Hague Invasion Act,’” Bolton said.
“This law, which enjoyed broad bipartisan support, authorizes the president to use all means necessary and appropriate, including force, to shield our service members and the armed forces of our allies from ICC prosecution. It also prohibits several forms of cooperation between the United States and the Court,” Bolton said.
“I was honored to lead U.S. efforts internationally to protect Americans from the Court’s unacceptable overreach, starting with un-signing the Rome Statute,” Bolton said. “At President Bush’s direction, we next launched a global diplomatic campaign to protect Americans from being delivered into the ICC’s hands.”
“This administration will fight back to protect American constitutionalism, our sovereignty, and our citizens,” the fact sheet said. “As always, in every decision we make, we will put the interests of the American People first.”
And despite the expected criticism of the Trump administration’s decision Bolton noted the U.S. is part of a majority of court skeptics.
“Today, more than 70 nations, representing two-thirds of the world’s population, and over 70 percent of the world’s armed forces, are not members of the ICC,” Bolton said. More here
