I agree with Caz and Eldrick too Len...............much safer if agencies know where he is and the bail conditions are very strict.

Pablo..................I'm sure everyone in the forces have their own opinions all the time..............they might not voice them in public though.

Radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza has lost his High Court battle against extradition to the US where he faces terror-related charges.
Two judges ruled that the decision to extradite was "unassailable".
Egyptian-born Hamza, 51, from west London, who is fitted with hooks on both partially-amputated arms, is serving a seven-year jail term for stirring up racial hatred and inciting followers to murder non-believers.
The US authorities want He could face a total of 11 terrorism charges, including sending money and recruits to assist the Taliban and al Qaida.
Sir Igor Judge and Mr Justice Sullivan, sitting at the High Court in London, gave his lawyers 14 days to apply for leave to launch a final appeal to the House of Lords after dismissing his case.
Senior district judge Timothy Workman ruled at Westminster Magistrates' Court that Hamza, currently held at Belmarsh top-security prison in south east London, could be extradited, and in February this year Home Secretary Jacqui Smith gave the final approval.
The High Court judges said they had reached the "clear conclusion that the order made by Judge Workman was properly made, and that the subsequent decision of the (Home Secretary) was unassailable".
Hamza's lawyers had argued at the High Court in London that extradition was unlawful because he would be tried in the US "on the basis of the fruits of torture". They said there was clear evidence that torture was used on some individuals in the process of gathering the information which led to the US extradition request.
They also contended that it would be "unjust and oppressive" to extradite because of the passage of time and incompatible with Hamza human rights. They said any further trials should take place in London

I can't understand those who seek sanctuary here (or other countries) and then stir up trouble preaching hate racism and violence.. it just puzzles me.. surely it's like pooping in your own nest??
