It goes on, “The request marks the first time that ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has targeted Americans for alleged war crimes. Bensouda said an investigation under the auspices of the international tribunal could break through what she called “near total impunity” in Afghanistan… As well as alleged crimes by American troops in Afghanistan, Bensouda wants to investigate the activities of CIA operatives in secret detention facilities in Afghanistan and in Poland, Romania and Lithuania, which also are members of the court. Bensouda said in a summary of her request that “information available provides a reasonable basis to believe” that U.S. military personnel and CIA operatives “committed acts of torture, cruel treatment, outrages upon personal dignity, rape and sexual violence against conflict-related detainees in Afghanistan and other locations, principally in the 2003-2004 period.”…Bensouda’s filing said alleged abuses of detainees in CIA custody, “appear to have been committed with particular cruelty, involving the infliction of serious physical and psychological injury, over prolonged periods, and including acts committed in a manner calculated to offend cultural and religious values, and leaving victims deeply traumatized.”

Now the USA is not a signee of the ICC accord, but its citizens including gov’t/military/intel members can be brought up on charges where crimes occurred in countries that are members of the ICC.

I hope this goes forward, and Americans from Presidents on down are charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity. But unless a significant percentage of the People of the USA and the world demand this, it’s not likely to prove successful.
