I’ve been critical and cynical about the US for a number of years, but I never thought I’d see the day that men would quake in fear, yelling “don’t extradite me to America! They’ll torture me!”.

Really, I didn’t see it coming.

True, the man in question doesn’t actually use the word “torture”, but his lawyers are saying that if he is extradited that he may be sent to Guantanamo Bay and that his human rights might be violated. Hard to say if this is legal chicanery or legitimate fear by the suspect, but even if it is just a cheap trick, things have degraded pretty far for these arguments to be taken even somewhat seriously in a court of law.

Quite a rep we’ve gotten. Like the USSR, with Bibles and cowboy hats.
