“After three years seeking the extradition from Canada of Chinese business executive Meng Wanzhou, the Justice Department has thrown in the towel by agreeing to a deal that enabled Meng to return freely to China. Meng had been under three years of house arrest in Canada, as the Justice Department ferociously sought her extradition. … Meng’s release without a guilty plea and a conviction constitutes an implicit acknowledgement that U.S. officials should never have brought the prosecution in the first place. They took three years out of this person’s life, not to mention saddling American taxpayers with an idiotic and ultimately failed extradition attempt. Meng’s purported crime? That she and her company Huawei had violated U.S. sanctions on Iran!” (09/29/21)
