What, so the US govt. can arbitrarily arrest a foreign national(*), chuck him
in jail, drag him in chains from one state to another, deprive him of
all accepted 'rights' and after all *that* if a judge chucks the case out
of the window they can just say "oops, sorry" and expect not to get sued
for at least a million bucks(**) by their victim?
Has anyone heard if the Russian govt. have anything to say about all this?
(*) Or even one of their own nationals.
(**) Just a guess.
