Re: [7x10minilathe] Re: US military Engagements Under Clinton OT:
- Consider the LOST treaty that they want to ratify. All sorts of bad
things in there giving away measures of US sovereignty. That's also
one of the reasons to date none of our Presidents have signed, nor
Congress's have ratified any treaty that puts our folks up against the ICC.

- True, and we did not prosecute Clinton for treason, but it does not change the fact that the laws exist, they were broken and CAN be used when the time is ripe.
remember, we are now entering a time with a very one-sided point of view would love to see the opposing political camp jailed and tortured. Look at all the violence that comes out of the left and the venom that some spew on this list towards the republicans.

It would be interesting if these events were actually correlated with some evidence of what was discussed. Secrets usually get out. I am patiently waiting for this one to surface. If it does, would that be a violation of the law significant enough to prosecute?
