11 Jan Chertoff and the International Criminal Court
11.01.05 | 1 Comment
On a tangentially related topic, President Bush announced today that he is nominating Judge Michael Chertoff to be the new Homeland Security chief. I don’t know all that much about Judge Chertoff, except that he is well-respected in conservative circles. Interestingly, he has penned what I think is a very convincing critique of the International Criminal Court based on the statements made by the ICC officials themselves, who have not exactly made any serious effort to gain acceptance in the U.S. for their controversial institution and who present an easy target for critics of international institutions and the UN system generally.
I agree with you. The Standard also has another great article by Chertoff on Law, Loyalty and Terror.
