Statement from the President

White House Office of the Press Secretary

Today, the International Criminal Court (ICC) announced its unanimous rejection of a request to investigate American military and intelligence professionals who served in Afghanistan. This is a major international victory, not only for these patriots, but for the rule of law. We welcome this decision and reiterate our position that the United States holds American citizens to the highest legal and ethical standards. Since the creation of the ICC, the United States has consistently declined to join the court because of its broad, unaccountable prosecutorial powers; the threat it poses to American national sovereignty; and other deficiencies that render it illegitimate. Any attempt to target American, Israeli, or allied personnel for prosecution will be met with a swift and vigorous response.

    Winning is great. But this is much more than winning. It is a wise and just decision from a body that has not always shown either virtue. I believe this court was influenced, perhaps subconsciously, by the determination and dedication of our President to see that justice is served at all times by all courts.

    Thank You, Lord, for showing mercy toward America and American patriots!

      The court was most definitely influenced by the position and dedication of our President, and I don’t think it was subconsciously. That’s why it’s winning.

      Bullies back down when challenged.

    Now we must get our military courts under control and get the patriotic soldiers who have been imprisoned by Obama’s people for killing the damn radical muslims in Afganistan and elsewhere out of jail.
