"The recent arrest of Ratko Mladic for the slaughter of 8,000 Bosnian Muslims in the 1990s was powerful evidence of an emerging global consensus that those who commit heinous crimes will be found and punished, no matter how long it takes. Now, defenders of multilateral institutions, like the International Criminal Court, are turning to arrest warrants that Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo has sought against Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy and his allies as another significant move in defense of human rights. Consistency, however, may not be a good thing. Mladic was a man in hiding; we still need something from Khadafy." (06/06/11)
