Re: @ LaeMing
Yes, you did, AC. It is part of the extradition agreement which the Blair government signed up to (he's done pretty well out of the US since he was evicted, hasn't he?)
John McCain, no less, actually observed in the Senate that the extradition treaty was pretty unbalanced. Basically if a US Court wants you they do not have to present any evidence - and unless you manage to attract the attention of a lot of people and perhaps the ECHR that Cameron and Farage want to excuse us from, there is not a lot you can do about it. You can fall into the bottomless money sucking pit that is the Calvinism-derived US legal system, be faced with a plea bargain to admit to something you didn't do or go to prison for life for it, and the Home Secretary will try to wash her hands of you.
You might also want to look at what happened to SpamAssassin.
Anyone who had to learn about the Roman Empire at school will recognise the syndrome. Upset the Emperor and you could be pursued to the borders of Iran. Or the Germanies. In those days, of course, there wasn't a Russian government to try.
