"They have the legal right to hack into any computer they want, anywhere in the world."

Only under U.S. law would it be "legal". In theory, if one of them ever showed up in another country where such alleged hacking took place, the FBI guy responsible for the hacking could STILL be arrested for it, "over there".

And the country where the server hack took place could STILL file for extradition, etc. if they wanted to.

Yeah, like it would ever happen...
