When the defendant head of state is a national of a state party to the treaty, head-of-state immunity is not really abrogated; rather, the state that holds the immunity has merely waived it in advance or delegated its power to try its own leaders.
In the United States, the distinction between the law of head-of-state immunity and the law of state sovereign immunity began to be gradually recognized in the second half of the twentieth century.
Verifying that it is irrelevant whether a leader actually exercises de facto control, the court asserted that head-of-state immunity extends to the person that the executive branch recognizes as the legitimate head of state.

 Declassified Documents on British Guiana
During the late 1950s, the United States Government became increasingly concerned over the political and economic policies of the PPP Government led by Dr. Cheddi Jagan, even though the Government was freely elected by the people of Guyana.
However, we believe that he would consider this undesirable, even if he were fully committed to eventual establishment of such a state, in view of the lack of trained cadres in British Guiana, the territory's primitive state of political and social development, and the likelihood of adverse international reactions.
At this meeting, State and AID agreed (a) that technical assistance be expanded immediately to approximately $1.5 million; (b) that an economic mission be sent to Georgetown by February 15; and (c) that the Jagan Government be informed of these steps.

He exposes the drivel dispensed by Dan Rather and others for the truly useless crap that it is. He explains why middle class America is angry and shows why there is such a credibility gap between the so called "elite" and people that most of us consider real Americans.
