US asks for extended exemption from war crime

As revelations of prisoner abuse just keep coming out, the bUSh administration actually had the nerve to request that the UN Security Council extend their immunity to prosecution by the Internation Criminal Court at the Hague for another year. Link from Horst of Aardvark Speaks. "Given the recent revelations from Abu Ghraib prison," said Richard Dicker of Human Rights Watch (HRW), "the U.S. government has picked a hell of a moment to ask for special treatment on war crimes." Just to ensure "compliance", they are threatening to block UN Peacekeeping endeavours in Iraq if they don't get their way.
