Qatar Welcomes Omar al-Bashir to Summit

Omar al-Bashir, the President of Sudan, has been indicted by the International Criminal Court.  But last week he was welcomed warmly in Doha, Qatar for an Arab League Summit.  Since his indictment, al-Bashir has traveled to Egypt, Eritrea, Libya, and now Qatar.  Instead of welcoming him in their countries, each should have helped turn him over to face trial on the charges filed against him. 

Mr. al-Bashir -- if you're reading this blog, how about visiting the Netherlands, home of the International Criminal Court?  There are many people waiting to see you there.
