Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ah well under the torture convention, If a country has an extradition treaty for anything, (even in the hypothetical case that extradition only exists for shoplifting) then if your country is a signatory of the Torture convention (and the US has ratified that one too) then Torture is automatically included in the treaties, whether its included or not.

Of course as a practical matter extradition may prove more difficult. Somebody gets the chance to try in ten days if they fancy it.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
