The International Criminal Court was created in 2002 to hear cases that involve crimes against humanity, genocide, and war crimes. The United States signed the original treaty that created the Court, but the Treaty has never been submitted to the Senate for ratification. The U.S. government has expressed concern that there are no checks on the Court's power, and that the Court may be used for political purposes. The State Department has also expressed its concern that the Court may prosecute U.S. citizens, even though the U.S. has not officially approved the treaty that created it.
