Rewards for Justice
Tuesday, January 21, 2003
I found out today that the US has extended its Rewards for Justice program to war criminals from Yugoslavia and Rwanda. This program offers rewards for information leading to the capture of criminals accused of genocide.
I applaud this extension of the original program, set up to offer rewards for the capture of high-ranking terrorists. The new war crimes program is an example of a way that the US can economically use its might and reputation to bring some of the worst criminals this world has ever known to justice.
This is also yet another example of a way in which the US aids the rest of the world that doesn't show up in the foreign aid budget. (Until someone is caught, and then it is money well spent.) This is also an example of how one leads by acting.
I would also like to congratulate the organizers of this program on the successful capture of two of the wanted men in Rwanda.
