First arrest warrant for a sitting President

From Amnesty Blogs:

Momentous news from The International Criminal Court today. For the first time a sitting head of state has been issued with an international arrest warrant. But how long it will take before the President of Sudan is arrested is quite another matter.

An important legal precedent, I think. Some of us still dream of Blair and Bush standing in the dock at the Hague, but I think we can dream on.
