    Dutch court blocks extradition to U.S. over torture concerns.....

    A Dutch court on Tuesday blocked the extradition of a man accused of having fought against U.S. troops in Afghanistan, saying it could not be ruled out that the CIA had been involved in his torture after his arrest in Pakistan. Dutch court documents showed the suspect, a Dutch-Pakistani dual citizen named Sabir Khan, was tortured after his arrest by Pakistan's ISI security service. He faces charges in New York of conspiracy to commit murder and of supporting al Qaeda.

    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~

    Obama would only wind up releasing him back to Yemen anyway.

    Are people still labouring under the delusion that nobody knew until Feinstein's report? Seriously?
    Don't work out, work in.

    We all know that everybody knew, but now they have a verifiable excuse.

    Feinstein did us no good. But not explaining, what we were doing and why it was legal and had to be done was at least as bad.

    This example of Dutch courage will lead to their own downfall moreso than it will effect American intelligence or the safety of the American people. Now what will the self-destructive Dutch do with this guy?

    Heya AG. Not to mention, any Terrorists around our people will be coming with the excuse they were tortured. To most authorities.

    I don't know. Were they agreeing before, and have changed their minds, or were they not asked until now, but might well have said "No" anyway?
