On December 31, 2000, “the United States signed the [International Criminal Court (ICC)] treaty to create the first permanent international court designed to try cases of crimes against humanity. Not legally binding without ratification by the Senate, the U.S. signature, according to [President Bill] Clinton, was meant to ‘reaffirm our strong support for international accountability’ and to keep the United States ‘engaged in making the ICC an instrument of impartial and effective justice.’ ”
