More than two years after indicting a former online gambling mogul, federal prosecutors in Maryland say they continue to pursue his extradition on charges of running an illegal gambling business and money laundering. The disclosure, made Friday in U.S. District Court in Maryland, is contained in the first filing in the case since Calvin Ayre, 53, and others associated with his Bodog.com operation were indicted in February 2012. All four defendants remain at large, and Ayre — who is a Canadian citizen — is listed as one of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's "Most Wanted" fugitives In the filing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard C. Kay asks for the case to be marked as administratively closed while extradition proceedings play out. Kay wrote that in July, he and a defense attorney had reached an agreement in principle to resolve the case but were unable to finalize it. "The parties intend to continue to try to find a resolution that will not require extradition of the defendants, but, in the meantime, I am pursuing extradition," wrote Kay, who added that Ayre is believed to be in Canada or Antigua.

In his recent speech, President Barack Obama set forth what he described as narrow, reasonable guidelines for using drones to carry out targeted killings overseas. The U.S., he said, will only use drone strikes "against terrorists who pose a continuing and imminent threat to the American people. " Moreover, the U.S. will only act when other governments are unwilling or unable to stop terrorists in their territories and we do not have the ability to capture them. These guidelines still give the U.S. a self-granted license to use remote-controlled planes to kill people at its discretion around the world, and, worse, they further institutionalize this dangerous new type of warfare.

Julian Assange, the peripatetic and elusive founder of the whistleblower web site Wikileaks, put himself at the center of a fine bit of political theater over the weekend when he used his fugitive status at the Ecuadorean embassy in London to demand the U.S. cease persecuting those who seek to hold governments accountable. Having stage managed a diplomatic crisis between Britain and Ecuador that threatens to rupture relations between the two countries, Mr. Assange is milking the incident for all it's worth, but it remains to be seen whether that will be enough to get him out of the jam he's in. Mr. Assange had been living in London for the last two years after fleeing Sweden to avoid being questioned about two women who claim he raped them.
