Comment 5 by Stevehill :

the Centre for Constitutional Rights (CCR), a US-based organisation that represents the claimants.

I don't disagree with the complaint. I do however think there would be a certain amount of justice if the ICC were to say that it will entertain complaints from the US only if and when the US recognises the court.

Here's a free clue: The CCR is not a government organization. It is a private group that does not answer to the US Government. It also has made cases against the US government itself in US court, so it's not exactly a group that tows the official line and is in agreement with the US government.
