Martha Bixby has an excellent compilation of the responses of the US Government to the ICC arrest warrant for Al-Bashir. She notes:
The White House, State Department, US Mission to the UN and members of Congress all responded to the ICC arrest warrant today. In general, the statements were, well, nice and general. It’s almost like the government was caught by surprise. I just thought maybe we’d have an envoy in by now, or at least someone who could do more than release a 2 paragraph statement or have their spokesperson answer questions in vague ways.
