THE BREAD IS BUTTERED ON THE U.S. SIDE:

Jordan will not hand US citizens over to ICC (Reuters, 1/08/06)

Jordan’s parliament on Sunday approved a law that prevents Amman handing over U.S. citizens accused of war crimes to the international criminal court, lawmakers said.

The United States is firmly opposed to the ICC, set up in 2002 as the world’s first permanent global war crimes court, fearing it will be abused for politically-motivated cases against its troops and citizens. […]

Instead, Jordan would be required to surrender them to the custody of the U.S. government, in apparent contravention to Jordan’s obligations to the ICC.

They know who the good guys are.
