US Wanted Haroon Rashid Aswat But Britain Said No?

Well I completely support Britain in their intensified war on terror, and like most supportive Americans don't want to pour salt on a very open and painful wound, but this is pretty disturbing:

Refussed Request

Seems that we asked British officials for their assistance apprehending Haroon Rashid Aswat over a month ago and they said no. Aswat assisted in the July 7th London bombing, and we had located him in South Africa last month, but when asked by South Africa on the American request, Britain said no. We wanted him for his attempt to establish a terrorist training camp in Bly, Oregon back in 1999.

Just when it appears that the British are taking a step forward about getting serious on this war, it seems a politically correct step takes them backwards. I support them strongly but there are some serious legal steps that need to be taken to protect the British people. Britain needs a much more comprehensive and aggressive terrorism law that will allow them to apprehend and question terrorist like Haroon Rashid Aswat, and prevent them from doing the things that they desire to do. Overly Political Correct approaches with killers like this guy do nothing but make the citizens more vulnerable to deadly attacks....................................
