The brief editorial omits the fact that the Syrian government did not defend itself in the trial, and fails to cite the questionable source of the accusations, a supposed Syrian defector with the code name “Ulysses”. The judge in the case described Colvin’s death as an “extrajudicial killing”. This tragic death took place in the course of one of the United States’ ongoing wars of aggression, wars that the UN defines as the supreme international crime. Granted, one extrajudicial killing is one too many. But when will the US and its allies be held accountable for the hundreds of thousands of extrajudicial killings they have committed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and elsewhere since September 11,2001?
