Law of the Sea Convention
Leon Panetta and General Dempsey are bloody morons. The Law of the Sea convention that they are pushing the Senate to ratify would allow the UN to arbitrarily strip the US of waterways that belong to our country simply by have another nation that dislikes us, or wants access to the resources (hello Cuba), to bring the dispute to the UN. They then make a judgement, that we would be legally required to follow, as to who retains control of the waters. Judgement is determined by a board of shifting board of UN members (as most UN committees are), many of which are openly hostile toward us. Yes, let's just ratify a treaty that gives our enemies yet another way to destroy us.
