    Charles Taylor may be a US citizen, but he is not a former US President or a member of a former US Presidential Administration.

    While I like to imagine the Hague jumping in if our government fails to seek justice, I know that that scenario is a total pipedream - it will never happen.  Because the prosecution of an American President in an international court would be viewed as a serious compromise of our autonomy as a country - imagine how other countries feel - but Americans don't do that - anyhow my point above was that if we continue to irritate our neighbors around the world by prosecuting them - invading them - plucking people out of countries and holding them at secret or public sites without any effort to try them - and protecting our own when they break the law - and our economic status continues on a downward spiral then we lose ultimately - that's my opinion anyway.
