As the home secretary is praised for blocking the extradition to the US of a man with Asperger's syndrome, the government is accused of "old-fashioned racism" over a similar case.

The home secretary was praised by David Cameron at the recent Conservative Party conference for successfully securing the extradition of radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza, along with four others, to the USA.

One of those extradited was Syed Talha Ahsan, a 34-year-old British man. He is not an associate of Abu Hamza, nor charged with the same terrorism charges as Abu Hamza. Like Gary McKinnon, he suffers from Asperger's syndrome.,

The 5 men deny terrorism charges - and to be fair..They don't look like terrorists - I mean apart from their skin colour

So, why the blatant contradiction in policy,on the UK's end? Is it just blatant racism, as suggested?

Well, you can read one of the hundreds of threads on this site that highlight the favoritism in the UK toward immigrants, including Middle Easterners..So I'm confident in thinking thats another contradiction.

The charges against Mr Ahsan and Mr Ahmad relate to the Azzam website and were specifically that the website had "exhorted Muslims to travel to Chechnya and Afghanistan in order to defend those places", and that "classified USA Navy plans relating to a US Navy battle group in the Straits of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf had been sent to the website".


Fall guys?
Deeper politics?
McKinnon distraction?

Just seems like more populist politics from the Tory's. Its like most things they do now are just some bones thrown out to the Daily Mail readers. Funny how they deride the human rights act one day a an cheer it on the next.
