The need to regulate the lucrative ‘war crimes’ industry
GERALD M. STEINBERG, +The Times of Israel

...Israeli military and political officials are also subject to campaigns seeking to criminalize counter-terrorism. In 2010, Judge Richard Goldstone acknowledged that an inquiry into the 2008-2009 Gaza conflict that he chaired under the auspices of the United Nations Human Rights Council, was based on invented allegations. After putting his name on a 500-page report that recycled rumors and unverified “testimony,” Goldstone wrote that there was no evidence to support claims of deliberate killing. His reputation and career were destroyed.

Goldstone’s bogus report, like the UK scandal, was the product of the lucrative and well-funded “war crimes” industry, led by dozens of powerful non-governmental organizations (NGOs) claiming to promote human rights. Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch (HRW) are among the main culprits. Founded to campaign for political prisoners, neither had any knowledge of the complexities of counter-terrorism when they reinvented themselves as experts on war crimes and interpreters of the law of armed conflict.

For conservatives, the most important moment of Trump's first month was his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. This is a real, substantive and excellent step that, in many a presidency, would by itself mark the first month as a success. Trump's promise to pick a justice "in the mold of Scalia," and his list of 21 candidates was crucial to his winning the election. This was the convincing factor for countless conservatives.

And Trump delivered. Gorsuch isn't just a "conservative judge," (a vague term). He is brilliant and careful in his reasoning, and crystal clear in his writing. His rulings have shown him faithful to the Constitution and attentive to the letter of the law. On religious liberty, Gorsuch has been a pioneer in broadening individual liberties and narrowing state power.

One of Trump's sloppiest moments may have been his immigration executive order. Unlike many of his fine early orders regarding regulations and ethics, his moratorium on immigrants from terrorist-tied countries didn't go through the standard interagency process, and so it ran into problems. Detention of lawful permanent residents isn't simply a snafu, it's symptomatic of a sloppiness that needs to be cured.

The West Coast judges who blocked the order overreached, but they probably couldn't have touched the rule if it had been clearly written to exempt people who already have visas. The flaws of the order were obvious from the start, and it was imprudent for Trump to dig in his heels and fight in court for two weeks.
