" That was not enough. Rumsfeld made it very clear that the United States would reject any attempt by the court or state parties to the treaty to assert any jurisdiction over American citizens. In short, Americans were accountable to no one for any atrocities they might commit anywhere in the world.
The ICC opened in March 2003, without the United States, despite efforts by the Bush Administration to hamper its creation. What impressive foresight on the part of the Secretary of Defense and his Commander in Chief in the White House "

This was in a May 2004 email article from this site. I have also read that in 2001, (I think) Rumsfeld withdrew from the wrold court but there was no source that this came from. Please, if any9one has the source for this, post it asap......thanks
