i just wonder who is advising this guy to take the positions he does. it seem incredibly ironic that in this case he supports an international court but refuses to in 99% of all other cases...

President Bush , who presided over 152 executions as governor of Texas, wants to halt the state's execution of a Mexican national for the brutal killing of two teenage girls. Texas wants the death penalty to be carried out. Jose Ernesto Medellin, above, was sentenced to death in 1994 for the rapes and murders of two teenage girls in Texas.

The case of Jose Ernesto Medellin has become a confusing test of presidential power that the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately will sort out. The president wants to enforce a decision by the International Court of Justice that found the convictions of Medellin and 50 other Mexican-born prisoners violated their rights to legal help as outlined in the 1963 Vienna Convention.

That is the same court Bush has since said he plans to ignore if it makes similar decisions affecting state criminal laws. "The president does not agree with the ICJ's interpretation of the Vienna Convention," the administration said in arguments filed with the court. This time, though, the U.S. agreed to abide by the international court's decision because ignoring it would harm American interests abroad, the government said.

Texas argues strenuously that neither the international court nor Bush , his Texas ties notwithstanding, has any say in Medellin's case.
