Is the ICC incompetent?

De Waal and some others are making this argument. But part of me wonders if it is not misplaced. The court (judges and prosecutor) just has to be less incompetent than the war criminals appearing before trial... like the old joke and the men running away from the bear. Al-Bashir seems to think the court is pretty competent. Otherwise he'd show up, post his bail, and have his lawyers run circles around the court... but... do you really think he thinks he'd get acquitted because the court is incompetent?
