Any way you slice it, the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) threatens American sovereignty. So why would the Senate even consider ratifying it? Treaty proponents such as Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., claim the treaty would give the United States important new rights and advantages. But, as Heritage Foundation expert Kim Holmes, a former Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs, observed last year, LOST offers the U.S. nothing we’re not already entitled to under customary international law.......The first hearing, conducted last week in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was a real eye-opener. No critics of the pact were allowed to testify. The witness list, hand-picked by the Administration, consisted of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. During the hearing, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) professed to be starting from a neutral position vis a vis ratification. Directing a query to Ms. Clinton, he said “A lot of people believe that the administration… wants to use this treaty as a way to get America into a regime relating to carbon, since it has been unsuccessful doing so domestically.
