John Bolton on Law, "International Law," and American Sovereignty
By John R. Bolton
January 11, 2011
...Many in his administration are doing their utmost to subvert America's well-deserved reputation as an adherent of the rule of law by subordinating it to the dangerous concept that international law, as defined by its high priests, overrides our domestic law, including in the judiciary.[/b]
Let's start with the "logic" of his statement: Our "reputation" as an adherent of the "rule of law" is damaged by following international law? Brilliant. He then goes on to criticize Obama for wanting to handle terrorism as a violation of law. Bolton needs to get his marbles checked.
Now a quick couple of facts. First, we have no such reputation as a government with a particularly great adherence to the "rule of law." Our government has a long history of ignoring laws domestically and abroad for a couple of centuries now. It's dang near a tradition.
