The head of the independent U.N. commission on Syrian war crimes said Friday that commanders of the Islamic State extremist group are good candidates" to be put on a confidential list of alleged perpetrators.
Brazilian diplomat and scholar Paulo Sergio Pinheiro said the al-Qaida breakaway group, which now controls a swath of north and eastern Syria, has carried out public executions, crucifixions and other gross human rights violations. [ ]
He said the list includes people who are criminally responsible for hostage-taking, torture and executions; heads of Syrian intelligence branches and detention facilities where detainees are tortured; military commanders who target civilians; airports where bombing attacks are launched; and armed groups and individuals involved in attacking and forcibly displacing civilians.

If ever there was a time for the UN to send in their blue helmets, this is it.
Sure, to arm the terrorists like the UNRWA does Hamas.
Yep, to stand around and do nothing and intimidate no one ... and possibly die for their efforts.
Maybe the UN Headquarters should be moved to Kiev, Ukraine?
* Near the action;
* Centrally located and thus reduces the need to fly across the Pacific Ocean;
* Plenty of Russian Natural Gas to heat a new UN HQ;
* Putin could build the HQ in Kiev, if it was named after him, of course.
Obama helped them, even financially. Maybe the Un will do more than the rinos to bring obama to justice. I know. Just wishing life was fair.
“If ever there was a time for the UN to send in their blue helmets, this is it.”
More likely is that the UN will invite the bad guys to UN get-togethers to party and burn U.S. flags.
Yeah, good idea. And maybe send someone in to investigate the Iranian nuclear weapons program, Iranian war on women, Assad’s mass-murder of Syrians, and maybe get around to demilitarizing Iran’s terrorist proxies in Lebanon and Syria.
They are on a CONFIDENTIAL list.
Well, that will show them!
Heh, it’s soooo confidential that he announced their inclusion to the media.
