He commited the alleged offence from his bedroom in England, why should he have been extradited?

If he had have carried out the hacking from a New York hotel room then flew home to England then fair enough extradite him but he didnt.

He's aspergic, not retarded, and seeking evidence of UFOs hardly puts him into the same category as the bunch of evil bastards we've just extradited.

Supporters of Islamic terrorists are now crying that Talha Ahsan also has Asperger's Syndrome and are calling Theresa May racist, but they know full well that the cases could not be more different.

So if I phoned your mum/wife/daughter/sister and said "I'm phoning to say I'm gonna rape than murder you and all your family", I am innocent because I phoned from my home?

Bumlicker Blair would have sent him over on the first flight and then gone over himself to massage Obaba's balls.

You'd be guilty of a section 5 public order offence, I would have thought. Using threatening words designed to cause alarm or distress.

It was blair who made this fcuking law to extradite any brit to usa. Funny though no American can be extradited anywhere not even to Uk. Flush this law down the toilet now that we have used to it to rid ourselves of abu hamza and his goons.

More detail than I expected but I didn't know it was a public order offence and my ignorance cannot be a defence. This was a US military web portal. There would have been plenty of warnings about the illegality of unauthorized access.

The most he deserved was a fine or a community sentence, here in the UK.

The US military get more serious hackers every day from countries like Iran and Russia.
