Christopher Tappin-Terrorists have more rights than I do....

"A retired businessman said it was a "disgrace" that a radical cleric who poses a threat to the UK's national security has more rights than he has as he was extradited to the United States.

Christopher Tappin, who lost his two-year battle against extradition last week, said Abu Qatada had been allowed to stay in the UK, but he is being forced to leave."

Yet another disgraceful instance of the USA taking people from the UK to stand trial on the flimsiest of evidence and the British government not robustly defending the rights of its own citizens .

I would just like to state a few facts that perhaps hasnt come out in the articles published.

1)The USA sold the missiles and spares in the first place to Iran in the 1980s.

2)The missiles in question are Hawk missiles manufactured by an American company.

3)The missiles are air defence missiles and not offensive missiles.

4)The missiles were originally developed in the 1960s and are no longer in production or use in the USA.

5)The Eagle Pitcher batteries in question are openly for sale in America-presumable for uses other than missile batteries.

6)It is less than certain whether these batteries are covered by the US arms embargo on Iran.

7)It was a US citizen that sought to purchase the batteries legally in the US.He never bought them or arranged export of them.

8)Mr Tappin WAS clearly set up by the US authorities .

9)Mr Tappin will now face probably the rest of his life in an American jail whilst the terrorist scumbag Abu Qatada walks around London as free as bird and supported by the good old British taxpayers.
