will not be extradited immediately reports had suggested a special plane and fifty u.s. commandos had arrived in bangkok where victor boot was being held all correspondents covering the desire of a has been following the latest developments in the case there's finally been some clarity in the case it is very unlikely that it will be thailand day that is according to the country's prime minister who said that according to tie last because the united states already have filed a new set of charges against me that those include money laundering but he will not be extradited until those charges are actually heard for of course the united states realizing that they've basically set a spoke in their own mind now trying to do their best to withdraw those charges in order to be able to proceed with the extradition process but for now the boot remains in solitary confinement at the end. it was

a bag called hilton the type prison in the capital bank called the first united states authorities are doing everything they can to extradite the man to the u.s. as quickly as possible according to some rumors there's already a charge it is a special charter plane stationed at the air force base in thailand that was said there just to pick up and bring him back to the united states so he could stand trial there but so far basically all those attempts to extradite the man as soon as the ruling was made on august twentieth have failed we don't know what will happen tomorrow but for now think that a bit remains and talent of course the united states authorities do want him in the u.s. as quickly as possible there are a number of reasons for that my colleague lauren lyster looked at some of them last week prior to the appeals court ruling for viktor brutes extradition there was immense pressure from u.s. president barack obama's administration coming from the state department the state
2:05 am
department met with the thai ambassador in the u.s. and said that this extradition was a top priority for the united states in the same manner the u.s. ambassador in thailand met with officials in bangkok and told them the same thing putting the same pressure on them separately six lawmakers from both sides of the aisles in the united states in the u.s. congress sent a letter to the thai government saying that victor boots release would be a threat to both thailand and the united states by the way of him selling arms to governments or organizations that would target the u.s. or thailand so there was immense pressure applied prior to his extradition what's really behind washington's vilification though is the question and there are several different analyses for this one analysis is that has come out is that boots simply knew too much and could really embarrass the united states with the information that he had you know he was involved in government and groups and trafficking. and moving goods but also arms forty seven's not only for governments
2:06 am
all over the world but for the u.s. government for allies of the u.s. government also for afghanistan and iraq one analyst has come out saying that booth transported not only arms for the us into iraq but he also transported arms for the taliban and that having him having worked both for the u.s. government the u.s. military as well as afghanistan prior to nine eleven who knows what kind of information he has that could embarrass the united states he was arrested and at the thai capital bangkok in march two thousand and eight. mile by the u.s. government using him of international arms trafficking and specifically selling and delivering weapons to known terrorist organizations he was taken down in the thai capital by a joint sting operation by the u.s. and thai authorities or so that the board has always maintained his innocence his family and his lawyers many analysts actually believe that one of the main reasons
2:07 am
that the man is being persecuted by the united states authorities is because of his long term contracts with the pentagon itself of course of george bush in two thousand and four that president or have voted with the united states government to from having any kind of contract with that and his companies but despite that request despite the order by the president the pentagon actually extended his contract to two thousand and six so for two years the pentagon operated with it the bill and his companies basically outside of the law many analysts now believe that because of the information that he possesses something that he could reveal could be damaging and or potentially embarrassing to the united states what investigative journalist student says the boot case has been twisted to the scholars american. time teligent officers a very high level told me that in fact the whole thing was already done before it
2:08 am
started in the sense that you know the court of instance was going to rule in favor so it looked actually the book was going to win the case and the appeals court was going to rule in boots against big trouble so that nobody could say that it was askew decision that nobody could say that the americans paid the ties everybody could say it was one for blood one would for the americans except that the appeals court decision was the final decision because unfortunately in thailand there was no appeals to the supreme court as far as the fourth as a concert i think is chance of winning the case the united states is zero point zero united states states have spent fifteen years trying to allegedly try to catch an alleged garden runner but that it was it true they spent two and half years trying to win the extradition case and a victory would actually said to the united states to think that he can win in the united states against america on their home turf when everything is against them so that in the end if you walks and goes home america will all become a laughing stock of the entire world not to mention whatever little credibility
2:09 am
they have as a nation will definitely be ruined well meanwhile military analysts if any who show off says people involved in the illegal arms deals enjoy u.s. support. for the state department right now there is nothing more important in its foreign affairs then to bring to justice the mood of the faraway thailand it is driven by obsessive desire to silence and to sentence the boot supposedly as that russian equivalent of the senator charlie wilson who unleashed the i saw of it proxy war in afghanistan thirty years ago now it is a high possibility that before the week her case will be closed or resolved the truth will come out the us state department is actively interfering with the us lloyd foresman operations in afghanistan thus providing the political cover
2:10 am
