Language update from "Law of Nations". The 'Law of Nations' was common to christendom up until 1860-something, when the Mohammedan Ottoman Empire signed the Treaty of Paris. The Law of Nations was not a book, but several, derived in theory from the same natural law the Constitution is based on.

Now we have 30 shelf-feet of treaties at large, the UN, and so on, which are acts of Congress, and thus Bush ignoring all that is a rancid collection of war crimes.
