    The fact that the UN Special Rapporteur is investigating the US for human rights violations based on civilian murders (which can also be war crimes), and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights wants the US investigated, means they believe the violations fall within their investigative jurisdiction.

    And since they are willing to stick their necks out against the most powerful State in world history, indicates they believe they have a case worth pursuing.

    I doubt much will come of it, considering the enormous clout of the US, but this is highly significant.
