Justices debate international law on TV

I sure wish I could have heard this debate. I read a ruling by SCOTUS where Justice O'Connor cited international law for the basis of her vote. I don't remember what the vote was on but at the time all I could think was and people say that judges of the left aren't activist? What does international law have to do with the US?

Justice Antonin Scalia on Thursday chastised the "arrogance" of U.S. judges who seek to decide politically charged questions involving gay rights and the death penalty by citing international law.
