Bush & Europe

NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports on the ongoing dispute between the United States and the European Union over the new International Criminal Court, the world's first permanent war crimes tribunal. EU foreign ministers are meeting in Denmark today, looking for ways to defuse the dispute. The Bush administration opposes the court, fearing American citizens could be subject to politically motivated prosecution. EU countries see the new tribunal as a milestone in the development of international justice.
