    ... someone who has dirt on a big US bank has good reason to fear going to a country where they are subject to being extradited to the United States and having their civil rights abused.

    The diary argues that he's a horrible person, but being a horrible person is no guarantee against having your rights abused by the US government if you have dirt on a big US bank.
