Spanish lawyer accuses Obama at International Criminal Court of crimes against humanity for killing of bin Laden
Does Daniel Fiol think that the 9/11 attacks were a crime against humanity? Did he file a complaint with the ICC about them? I would expect not. This is just more of the hard Left’s moral myopia — and ironically directed at a man who has drastically misdiagnosed the problem of jihad and apparently thinks that if he goes after al-Qaeda but allows the jihad to advance on every other front, all will be well.
A Spanish lawyer has formally accused Barack Obama of crimes against humanity for ordering the assassination of Osama bin Laden.
Daniel Fiol lodged a written complaint at the International Criminal Court accusing the US president of breaching the Geneva Convention.
Navy Seals acting on Mr Obama’s orders shot the al-Qaeda leader dead on May 2 after storming his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
In his written complaint, the Majorca-based lawyer said bin Laden should have been “pursued, arrested, tried and convicted” on behalf of “the victims of some terrible and appalling atrocities”. The killing of bin Laden was even worse as it took place in foreign territory, Pakistan, without the permission of that government, he said.
…which is a blot on Pakistan’s record.
“I am not being paid by al-Qaeda,” Mr Fiol joked….
No, but you might as well be.
