<National Report>(The Hague, Netherlands)–Word from the Netherlands today suggests that the International Criminal Court (ICC) has launched an investigation charging President Barrack Hussein Obama with war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The complaint, among other things, charges President Obama with being an accessory to Al Qaeda by secretly negotiating the trade of five high-ranking Al Qaeda official in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  The five released Taliban commanders, nicknamed the “Taliban Dream Team”, held various military and intelligence roles prior to being sent to the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

On the Facebook page of his Berghdahl’s unit, the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, a number of people characterized Bergdahl as a deserter who should be held accountable for his actions. Pentagon officials have confirmed that Berghdahl simply walked off base leaving his platoon behind and was later captured and imprisoned in Afghanistan.  As many as 6 US soldiers lost their lives in attempting to locate Berghdahl.

According to the published text, the complaint begins by quoting Article 7/1 of the Statute of the International Criminal Court, titled “Crimes against humanity,” which is reproduced below:

Article 7

Crimes against humanity

1. For the purpose of this Statute, “crime against humanity” means any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:

(a) Murder; (b) Extermination; (c) Enslavement; (d) Deportation or forcible transfer of population; (e) Imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law; (f) Torture; (g) Rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, or any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity; (h) Persecution against any identifiable group or collectivity on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural, religious, gender as defined in paragraph 3, or other grounds that are universally recognized as impermissible under international law, in connection with any act referred to in this paragraph or any crime within the jurisdiction of the Court; (i) Enforced disappearance of persons; (j) The crime of apartheid; (k) Other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health.

If found guilty, Obama could face jail time of up to 14 years.

      On behalf of Active Duty soldiers everywhere, I would personally like to thank everyone who is standing up and saying that they care more about hating the President more than bringing a soldier home from the clutches of our sworn enemy.

      I remember a similar situation where the U.S. government traded three enemy combatants for the release of one soldier. Those enemy combatants where North Vietnamese soldiers, and that U.S. soldier was John McCain.

        It’s not the same Vietnamese did not cause a threat to the US & Mc Cain did not desert his post. How can you even compare the two?

        I believe you missed the part that this soldier desires to support our enemies and hates America. True American patriots were killed looking for this deserter and his other platoon members have stated he wanted to go to the other side. So bring him back? Yes, most definitely so he can be charged for his crimes.
        As for John McCain, he is a large part of what is wrong in Washington as well.
        The entire govt. structure of this United States of America needs replaced with individuals that CARE about protecting our country and not destroying it for their own personal agendas and gain.
        We need leaders that care about the PEOPLE and the COUNTRY – not the charlatans that now possess these offices in Washington. I mean both Dems and Republicans too – no party bias here.

    Personally, I’m glad he’s back, he owes me money…

    We don’t leave any American behind, especially pansy waisted, man-childs who caused the death of 4,321 other Americans (who fought in this misbegotten war).

  4. Davis Emille says:

    So when is the investigation into the last administration going to start? Or are we giving them a pass? If President Obama was leader of the last administration, he would already be serving time. If President Bush was the leader of this administration, he would be hailed an American hero!!!!!!!!!! America needs to be before the ICC and World Court for it’s Crimes Against Humanity, the Native Americans and The Africans it enslaved!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no Statute Of Limitation for murder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Let us start there, then we can talk about other issues!!!!!
