    We've all known for years, and many of the torture victims have been saying so for years too. Maybe Fox didn't tell you all?

    Well I don't know of any other than Muslim countries.....that were denying extradition of fiscal AQ supporters. So this is going to be an issue if they are going to go with the Hague, on this.

    What difference does it make if they're not extradicted? If they were returned here, BHO would just release them anyway. Maybe the Dutch have just unintentionally done the world a favor! Let them live with their decision... they're closer to the problem of terrorist groups killing people in Europe than we are, and now they look frightened of offending terrorists by handling it this way!

    The court said the Netherlands could not transfer him because Dutch and international law prohibits the extradition of torture victims to countries that played a role in abuse. "This letter does not rule out the possible involvement of the CIA," the court in The Hague said in a statement. "Since it cannot be ruled out that it was the CIA which requested the arrest, the judge again forbids" his extradition.....snip~

    Well now.....what do you think of that. They will not extradite a supporter of AQ, and we are not talking about Cheerleading supporter. Fruits of Feinstein's releasing of the Torture Report.....huh? What say ye?
    If nothing else we can have our spec ops suicide him where he is. No problem.

    Well.....there is a chance their case will last longer than BO. But going forward lets hope others don't do the same.

    So the Dutch refuse to extradite him. It is their laws so they have to do what they have to do. What are they going to do now, though, release him into their society?

    This story has been around since 2013. They have been denying extradition since 2013. Long before that report came out.

    Absolutely. The democracies need to cooperate during this war on Islamic extremism and the Dutch have shown they would rather handle their own Muslim problem on their own. We'll see how that works out.

    Heya Hatuey. From your Link.

    The BBC's Hague Correspondent Anna Holligan says the judgement is significant as it appears to acknowledge that the US may have been aware of torture techniques used against suspects overseas - something Washington has always refused to comment on.....snip~

    So back then we refused to comment on that.Then sent a letter in Oct. Which now this Judge says the letter isn't good enough. Plus now the admittance by Feinstein to deny on grounds of torture. Is set in stone.


    Washington denied in a letter sent to Dutch officials in October in that U.S. authorities were involved in his arrest, but the Dutch court said it was not convinced the CIA had not been involved in his detention.

    "This letter does not rule out the possible involvement of the CIA," the court in The Hague said in a statement. "Since it cannot be ruled out that it was the CIA which requested the arrest, the judge again forbids" his extradition....snip~

    But like his attorney said.....he will be able to be free there, just not outside that country.
