In a rare moment of unified international action, on February 26 the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1970 referring the situation in Libya to the International Criminal Court. The US courageously co-sponsored and voted in favor of this resolution. This was a break from past practice, including its abstention on Resolution 1593 referring the Darfur situation to the Court.
Despite the need for accountability for the continuing atrocities, conservative commentators are attacking the administration and the Security Council for asking the ICC to investigate.
Will you write to President Obama to tell him that you support the Security Council’s action and thank him for the US leadership on Resolution 1970?
