Justice for International Criminals

The Economist has a snip worth reading.

Heads of state, past and present, are increasingly being brought to book for crimes committed while in office.

Thomas P.M. Barnett comments....

How can America not be in the lead on this emerging rule set that so favors a shrink the Gap strategy? How can this not be a huge lever in our global war on terror?

Indeed. Imagine how different the last six years would have been if the U.S. response to the attack on the World Trade Center had been an international police action led by America rather than a unilateral misdirected military response.
