    I wonder how Italy's development of their armed UAV's (drones) are coming along ?

    If Obama can do it, so can Italy.

    Obama was warned four years ago, be careful how you use these Predator drones, your writing the laws on how other nations can use armed UAV's (drones) over sovereign territory and take out wanted individuals.

    Not really. No more so than America's, anyway.

    Set that precedent? Not if America should like to encounter similar refusal, in response to future requests.

    Besides, the US has no vested interest. Why refuse?

    It's a US citizen being unfairly treated by a countries unjust, and corrupt legal system, I'd say you already acquitted her, we ain't sending her.

    It's one thing if new evidence surfaces, it's another to tell someone that was acquitted to come back and be tried again after being found innocent. Did the court or investigators find strong evidence or something indicating clear guilt?

    I'm not Italian. As for corruption, tell it to Rodney King.

    You'll send her. If not, America stands to lose it's moral authority, pertaining to future extraditions of terrorists. Your government would never sanction such a refusal. Sorry, but she's screwed.

    There is no double jeopardy here, this is still the first trial but then in the appeals process. She isn't being retried for the same crime, the first criminal case against her was still not resolved/definite.

    I highly doubt she'll be extradited. If I was her and worried about this, I'd go hide somewhere in the Cascades and just sit around smoking weed (it's legal in Washington!)
