on the surface, this extends to them the same courtesy that is given to UN officials, etc. it seems not to be a big deal. however, robo hit part of the nail. it's' not today we worry about, it's where this move to internationalism is leading. i believe this is in the same basket as giving the international courts jurisdiction over our military and it's actions, etc.
this was a small thing that could be done without to much alarm to the general public.
there was no pressing reason to do this. no lack of co-operation, or missed opportunities to get bad guys. it only makes sense in the context of the 'bigger picture' of internationalism.
baby steps, you know...........
