EU comes up with another reason to stop extradition of terrorists to U.S.

Jonathan L. writes:

As you’ve said many times, liberalism is an insatiable, ever-expanding entity that after consuming and destroying one aspect of traditional society cannot help but move on to the next. Here is further proof of that. A European court has barred the extradition of terrorists to the U.S.—and NOT because they may receive the death penalty here:

An international court on Thursday ordered Britain to hold off on extraditing four terrorism suspects to the United States, saying it must show that life terms without parole in maximum security prisons would not violate Europe’s human rights charter … If convicted of charges filed between 2004 and 2006, they could get lifelong jail terms without parole in maximum security conditions, including concrete furniture, timed showers, tiny cell windows and no communications with the outside world.

LA replies:

I’m staggered, but not surprised.
