The news is out: [President Donald Trump issued an executive order to sanction top officials on an international court responsible for investigating war crimes after the court announced potential investigations into U.S. misconduct during the war in Afghanistan.
During a press conference on Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that top officials on the International Criminal Court could face economic sanctions, to be determined on a case-by-case basis, for investigating the actions of the U.S. and allied forces against the will of those nations. In addition, the officials, along with their families, will be restricted from traveling to the United States.
Pompeo was joined at the press conference by Attorney General William Barr, Defense Secretary Mike Esper and national security adviser Robert O’Brien.]
The US has a lot to hide when it comes to war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
