Can we prosecute?

Last night Sunday apparantly had a piece on the Rainbow Warrior bombing. I didn't watch it, but it apparantly outed another of the bombers:

Former army officer Louis Dallias lives in Washington DC and is a respected businessman. While he regretted someone was killed in the mission, which was dubbed Operation Satanic, he says he was simply a soldier following orders.

New Zealand has an extradition treaty with the USA. Shouldn't the New Zealand government now be trying to extradite this man so we can bring him to justice for his role in the bombing and murder of Fernando Pereira?


"Just following orders". If he had been a vichy collaborator, that would not have saved him from the rope.

Of course, bombing a non-military ship, in a country one is not at war with, and killing a civilian, might be considered and act of terrorism. It was certainly the DGSE's intent to scare off greenpeace. GWB's americaland has promised that all terrorists everywhere will be brought to justice. Which implys the americans would instantly hand him over.
