Extradite?

Link

President Hugo Chavez said Sunday that his government may ask the United States to extradite U.S. religious broadcaster Pat Robertson to Venezuela for suggesting American agents should kill him.

[Note: Robertson made the threat after Chavez kicked out the DEA for spying.]
There’s a reasonably good argument that there’s sufficient reason to consider Pat Robertson’s statement a violation of U.S. law.
Now I personally don’t think that Robertson should be extradited to Venezuela (as much as the prospect appeals to me).
But a country that would claim that Canada must extradite Marc Emery for selling plant seeds can hardly be on firm moral ground in refusing to extradite someone who calls for the assassination of a foreign leader on national television.
