Opening of International Commission of Inquiry
International Action Center national co-coordinator Sara Flounders gave
the following talk to open the International Commission of Inquiry on July 31 in
New York.
We open this first session of the International Commission of Inquiry to
Investigate US/NATO War Crimes Against Yugoslavia.
We welcome all the participants who have traveled so far at great personal
expense. We welcome the diplomats and international guests who have joined us
today for this first hearing of the International Commission to Investigate
U.S./NATO War Crimes.
Today is the beginning of a historical process. This Inquiry is a challenge
to power. It is a demand for an accounting from the most powerful military and
economic forces in the world. It is the first step in a process that we are confi-
dent will resonate throughout the NATO countries and among all the peoples
targeted by the New World Order.
Today we will charge the U.S. government, in particular President Clin-
ton, Secretary of State Madeline Albright, Secretary of Defense William Cohen
and NATO commanding generals, along with the governments of Britain, Ger-
many and every NATO country who participated in the war with Crimes
Against Peace, War Crimes, Crimes against Humanity.
This Inquiry will show that they are in explicit violation of the treaties to
which they are signatories: the Principals of the Nuremberg Tribunal, the Hague
Regulations and the Geneva Conventions. They have violated the United Na-
tions Charter and even their own NATO treaty. The U.S. government in waging
this 78-day military assault is also in violation of the U.S. Constitution. Other
NATO members have violated the laws of their own countries.
This is lawlessness raised to a new and ominous level.
Will only the victors write the history of this war? Will there be an his-
torical accounting that is independent of the great powers that made war? Will
there be an accounting that is willing to hear the voices of the victims? Will
there be an accounting that is not written by the Pentagon hacks who masquer-
Today is the first step in a process to demand that NATO be held account-
able for a war on the civilian population. The Geneva Convention of 1949 pro-
hibits bombing not justified by a clear military necessity. If there is any likeli-
hood that a target has a civilian function than bombing is prohibited. Today's
testimony will show that NATO's targets were overwhelmingly civilian targets.
