President Obama Issues Statement in Support of ICC's Kenya Announcement

In response to the ICC Prosecutor's announcement on December 15 seeking summonses to appear for six individuals alleged to have committed crime against humanity as part of post-election violence in 2007, President Obama issued a statement endorsing the ICC's action and urged "all of Kenya’s leaders, and the people whom they serve, to cooperate fully with the ICC investigation." It follows the pattern in Washington of mentioning the ICC favorably in connection with specific situations and cases, but not in general.
