    that the Russian government adheres to American standards of evidence. Or human rights in general.

    I'd consider that a very debatable assertion in light of known facts, but let's just leave it at that.

    Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.

      where's my habeas corpus? Standards of evidence my ass. It's secret evidence that will aid and abet our endless enemies. Secret crimes, secret legislation,  secrete courts, secret warrants and no due process under the new super dupper secret Patriot Act,NDAA and FISA.  If the spooks the DoJ and the presidents decide your a enabler aider and abetter a spy? (to who) an enemy of the state or a affiliate or just a plain old terrist who's gonna kill yer family'.

      American standards? lol. The American standards our Bill of Rights is gone daddy gone. The Obama adminstration has made the Bushies abuses of power legal. Our congress has passed legislation that under the guise of the bogus endless GWOT makes the law whatever the spooks and Obama decide is necessary to keep us safe. Human Rights? Forget about it, they do not apply as we're at war with an enemy that is everywhere and we don't need to adhere to non stinking human rights.
