Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., reacting to reports in The Wall Street Journal, has called for an investigation by the International Criminal Court into the reported killings of Black Libyans in the city of Tawergha.
Human rights activists around the world have called for international justice and an end to impunity in the wake of the “U.N. Mapping Report on Human Rights Abuse in the Democratic Republic of Congo.” But many don't expect justice from an international criminal tribunal.
The inescapable implication of the U.N. report on the Congo is that Rwandan President Kagame could be legally proven to be a genocidaire, or perpetrator of genocide. President Obama must use the U.N. report to distance his administration from Mr. Kagame.
