In an unprecedented move, the Argentinean Supreme Court under the pressure of the US Justice Department agreed to extradite Kurt Sonnenfeld, a former Federal Emergency Management Agency official who revealed the US government’s connection with the 9/11 attacks. Sonnenfeld has been living in Buenos Aires for more than 10 years and according to the Denver district attorney he is charged with killing his wife back in 2002. The former agent, however, claims his wife killed herself and that prosecutors framed him for her death to prevent the truth about 9/11 from coming to light Sonnenfeld disclosed hours of classified footage and wrote a book entitled “The Persecuted” recalling the facts that eventually transformed him into one of the worst US enemies. According to him, the US government not only knew about the attacks on the World Trade Center, but also had a role. Human rights organizations blasted the Supreme Court decision.
Although the Supreme Court ruled the extradition request of Kurt Sonnenfeld admissible, it is up to the Argentinean President to decide whether to carry on with the sentence or to grant him political asylum.
