John Bolton: U.S. Will Not Cooperate with International Criminal Court


National Security Adviser John Bolton delivered remarks at the Federalist Society in Washington, DC. He criticized the authority and legitimacy of the International Criminal Court (ICC) stating,

Bolton threatened ICC judges with sanctions if they attempt to prosecute Americans over alleged war crimes in Afghanistan. The ICC is an intergovernmental organization based in the Netherlands that hears cases on genocide and other crimes against humanity.
