ABSTRACT
The author focuses on the implications of the submission of the U.S. to the International Criminal Court (ICC). He claims that the inauguration speech of President Barack Obama suggested submission to international authority. He provides information on a report written by David Scheffer and John Hutson wherein the authors claim that if the nation were to join ICC, one would have to accept the possibility that American citizens could be prosecuted before ICC for atrocity crimes.
