U.S. agreed with Moscow and no longer wants Bout?

Publication time: Today at 12:43 Emirate time
The American newspaper Haffington Post published an article by the famous American lawyer Robert Amsterdam, lawyer of former Prime Minister of Thailand Thaksin Shinawatra, in which he pointed out that America has declined its demands to Thailand to extradite Bout, an international terrorist from Russian gang of FSB.
It is to be noted that after America agreed with the Russia, it refused to accuse Bout of supplying weapons to al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab and the Taliban, Bout is not also needed to the US court, but harmful to America.
Amsterdam wrote:
"He could likely tell a great deal about the Russian-led networks that continue to arm jihadi movements in Somalia and Yemen. Bout is a picture perfect representation of "one of the men" currently in power in the Kremlin, and say what you will about Putin, he is very loyal to his friends.
The allegations against Bout, which are well documented by Amnesty International, the United Nations, and a number of other NGOs, may yet be outweighed by the complex political considerations, as Russia, the United States, and Thailand assemble to form a Bermuda Triangle of disappearing accountability.
On behalf of the United States, there appears to be some disputes about how much they actually want to receive Bout at this point. We all recall the recent spy swap organized with Russia.
It is time that we understand that we are engaging in a reset with people like Viktor Bout - he is not just some criminal in Russia, he is part of the ruling elite, operating under their instructions. Together, there are just too many players on the board to envision justice being served in this case".
