what is beneath the u.s. administration goes to great lengths to get its hands on the on the edge condition arms to boot testing the limits of international move as they push for his ability to extradition. discord is to build a mosque today ground zero in your pursuit of peace some saying issues just a way drawing attention from america's economic struggle. for the good prince a self-proclaimed moral seeks to move the president from prison and saying it's these good people right to rule the country. news much more twenty four hours a day this is o.t. . say a russian businessman wanted for stealing in the u.s. will not be extradited immediately reports had suggested
3:03 am
a special plane and fifty u.s. commandos had arrived in bangkok where vick to boot was being held all correspondence. 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 tile loss because the united states already has 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 we are 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 in the infamous bangkok hilton the thai prison in the capital bank called the first united states authorities. are doing everything
3:04 am
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 chartered plane stationed at an air force base in thailand that was said there just to pick up food and bring him back to the united states so he could stand trial there but so far basically all those attempts to extradite the bad as soon as the ruling was made on august twentieth have failed we don't know what will happen tomorrow but for now he could have been to amazing talent of course the united states authorities do want him in the u.s. as good 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 brute's extradition there was immense pressure from u.s. president barack obama's administration coming from the state department the state department met with the thai ambassador in the u.s. and said that this extradition was
3:05 am
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 and 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 governments and groups and trafficking and moving goods but also arms forty seven's not only forgot.
3:06 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 the thai capital bangkok in march two thousand and eight. mile by the u.s. government accusing him of international arms trafficking and specifically selling and delivering weapons to known terrorist organizations george bush in two thousand and four that a president. of the united states government a from having any kind of contract with the book 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
3:07 am
bill and these companies basically outside of the law he was taken down in the thai capital by a joint sting operation by the u.s. and thai authorities force that the board has always maintained his innocence but investigative journalist a student in the says the boots case has been twisted to discoveries american involvement. time teligent officers of very high level told me that in fact the whole thing was already done before it 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 the 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 what it would for the americans except that the 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
3:08 am
a concern i think is chance of winning the case the united states of zero point zero united states states have spent fifteen years trying allegedly trying to catch an alleged gun runner but that it was it true they spent two and a half years trying to win the extradition case and it would actually set 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 that whatever little credibility they have as a nation will definitely be ruined when meanwhile the military i'm going to have any who show off says people involved in the illegal arms deals in joint 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 their
