Skip to comments.Abu Hamza to be extradited to US
Posted on 10/05/2012 9:23:29 AM PDT by the scotsman
'Five suspected terrorists including Abu Hamza al-Masri can be extradited to the US, ending a long legal battle, UK High Court judges have ruled.
The radical cleric, Babar Ahmad, Syed Talha Ahsan, Adel Abdul Bary and Khaled al-Fawwaz failed to show "new and compelling" reasons not to send them.
Their appeal came after the European Court of Human Rights backed successive UK courts in ruling for extradition.
Judges said their extradition "may proceed immediately".
A Home Office spokesman, meanwhile, welcomed the decision and said it was "working to extradite these men as quickly as possible".
The BBC understands two US civilian jets - one of which is registered to the US Department of Justice - are on the tarmac at an air base in eastern England.
Judges Sir John Thomas and Mr Justice Ousley said in their ruling that there was an "overwhelming public interest in the functioning of the extradition system" and that there was "no appeal from our decision".
Of the long legal battle to send the men - whose extradition requests were submitted between 1998 and 2006 - to the US, Sir John told the court: "It is unacceptable that extradition proceedings should take more than a relatively short time, to be measured in months not years.
"It is not just to anyone that proceedings such as these should last between 14 and eight years."'

It's not?? But....but....Obama said.....
Obama will just pardon them and let them loose on the streets to blow up more Americans.
See more on this infamous ‘hate cleric’ who regards non-Muslims (AKA ikaffirs, infides) as cows and advocated killing infidels... for no reason.

I suspect that is what will happen. If Barry wins, he may keep Abu Hamza in prison for a while, just for appearance’ sake, but if he loses, he’ll pardon Abu Hamza as soon as he touches US soil.
One hopes that President Romney (never thought I’d like saying those words) will immediately order his rearrest.
Well isn’t this convenient timing...hmmmm.
Now why are the Brit’s sending these terrorist here?When all Obam will do is free them to cause trouble elsewhere.
We still have the Terrorist from Fort Hood who hasn’t even had a trial yet since the Obama administration is running interference.
He probably won’t have a trial until after the Presidential election and Obama’s thrown out.
“Now why are the Brits sending these terrorist here?When all Obam will do is free them to cause trouble elsewhere.”
So he can pull another Bin Laden type PR move before the election. Fort Hood doesn’t count because it was home grown. That makes Bammy look bad.
We don’t need any more rubbish in our country...thanks anyway.
Just shoot the bastards and pop them in a landfill.
