Amnesty International is upset with Uganda because it is set to sign an agreement with the US to turn over any targets of the International Criminal Court to the US instead of the ICC. Amnesty International (AmIn) says that this violates the ICC treaty that Uganda has ratified. Presumably the President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, has considered this and decided that Uganda isn't in much danger from rampaging war criminals from the US. That conclusion seems to have displeased AmIn. But as far as I can tell, all of the other major powers and all dictatorships have de facto immunity so it doesn't seem tob e a big deal for the US to get de jure immunity.
