Speaking of Extradition

A scenario that we floated a while ago becomes a bit more likely. Patrick Fitzgerald, two-pronged scourge of the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy, has indicted Conrad (Lord) Black, former Chicago Sun-Times and Daily/Sunday Telegraph owner, for fraud. Details are still sketchy (WSJ, AP, Romenesko, BBC) but there are other indictments as well and it seems that Black's former business partner David Radler is now singing like a bird to Paddy Fitz. Dreamers can hope for indictments of Lady Black and arch neo-con, Richard Perle.

UPDATE: Seaxneat wonders about the potential parallels between the indictment followed by cooperation by Radler to get Black and the Libby indictment.
