Searched ARRSE but no suggestion of a re-post. In Daily Wail: Suicide-risk British soldier to be extradited to U.S. over allegations of $100,000 fraud | Mail Online No doubt the PMC scene in Iraq was a big industry with some unscrupulous players involved. Is this the right way to go about it? Sure if the guy's swindled somebody out of $100,000 then he's liable to get prosecuted. I don't believe that any amount of military service should protect you from the justice system - or equally that medical proof that you have PTSD should exempt you from the justice system. But are we extraditing him for the right reasons, or are the yanks looking for a scapegoat so they can say "Nothing to do with us - it was a Brit. Fact."? The sceptic in me wonders whether the fact that Cameron and his pals have their tongues so far up Washington's arrses, means that they would have no issues in sending a sacrificial lamb to the slaughter if it means that the inter-continental relationship remains in good shape.
