The Bush administration is doing everything in its power to avoid Americans being prosecuted for War Crimes.
On August 3, 2002 The United States passed a law authorizing the use of military force to liberate any American or citizen of a U.S.-allied country being held by the War Crimes Court, which is located in The Hague. Now they are demanding a renewal of Security Council Resolution 1487. This measure grants immunity to personnel in U.N. authorized or approved operations from states that have not ratified the International Criminal Court (ICC) treaty.
