The Court and the U.S. (Clip 2 of 2)

In the second clip associated with The Reckoning lesson plan, John Bolton, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President George Bush, explains his opposition to the International Criminal Court. As a result, the U.S. is not a member of the court. Students should conduct research and build a case for why the United States should join the ICC, or a case for why it should not.
