    Detention of African warlord raises legal questions for Pentago

    So return him to Uganda, the ICC of which the US is not a member? The US placed the bounty, so what now?
    Detention of African warlord raises legal questions for Pentagon - The Washington Post

    An African warlord with a $5 million bounty on his head unexpectedly fell into the lap of U.S. troops last week, presenting the Pentagon with a military victory but also a legal conundrum: what to do with their newfound prisoner?

    Dominic Ongwen, a senior commander with the Lordís Resistance Army, the brutal militia led by messianic leader Joseph Kony, surrendered to Muslim rebels in the Central African Republic. The rebels, in turn, handed over Ongwen on Jan. 5 to U.S. Special Forces who are advising African soldiers as they search for Kony in thick jungle terrain across four countries.

    What did they plan to do with him when they offered the bounty?

    If he's bought and paid for, keep him. Send him to Gitmo.
