AMERICA has told Britain that it can “kidnap” British citizens if they are wanted for crimes in the United States.
A senior lawyer for the American government has told the Court of Appeal in London that kidnapping foreign citizens is permissible under American law because the US Supreme Court has sanctioned it. --timesonline.co.uk
Whats the phrase? Imperial Hubris? What these stupid monkey's don't get is that besides the fact that there are more than a few countries that are going to have a BIG problem with this, they are opening the door for the kidnapping and imprisoning of U.S. corporate executives abroad. Not that I give a damn considering what they are stating here.
The American government has for the first time made it clear in a British court that the law applies to anyone, British or otherwise, suspected of a crime by Washington.It's just that I presume the U.S. Titans of Industry© are also going to have a problem with this. Bush Co is basically funneling corporate money to the Democrats.
These guys are really trying to take us back to the 1800's.
UPDATE: Dr Cole lists a report from Baghdad:
Al-Hayat reports in Arabic that al-Mashhadani objected that US officers in Iraq do not have the prerogative of arresting a member of parliament without being ordered to do so by the Iraqi prime minister. (Parliamentarians have diplomatic immunity unless shown to have committed crimes).
My guess is that they don't know about how the U.S. is now the supreme legal authority everywhere on planet earth... Mars Bitches!
