    Engage in an activity that is legal in your own juristiction. Years later you are extradited to a foreign power, the USA, without the usual protections a citizen would expect.

    Outrageous. Use fear of terror to remove the protection of law.

    Great diary!

      It's like if you were selling an item on the internet that's perfectly legal--tennis balls, let's say--but in two years terrorists start using them, so then it becomes illegal to sell your product internationally.  The U.K. could request you, even though whatever you did was legal at the time you did it.  It's insane.
