Interpol is not a traditional police force that can arrest and extradite U.S. citizens. In that same December 30 article, The New York Times also quoted Billingsley saying: "We don't send officers into the field to arrest people; we don't have agents that go investigate crimes. ... This is always done by the national police in the member country under their national laws." Similarly, in a January 8 article, Human Events quoted Interpol secretary general Ronald Noble saying: "We don't have any armed agents. We don't have police officers who go into other countries and make arrests.
It is not what they have today that matters, it is what they CAN have tomorrow that does.
