Hushmail and DEA have an "MLAT" ("Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty")?

Interestingly enough, according to wikipedia, the United States and Caribbean nations "MLAT" laws do not cover U.S. tax evasion, and are therefore ineffective when applied to Caribbean countries,...imagine my shock. So much for seizing terrorist funds, just like the highly lucrative war on "some" drugs, the Bushcult terrorist kabuki war 2.0 or GWOT, in actuality is a war on "some"
terrorists. Folly the C -Notes as they say...

Just like how Yahoo CEO's were more than happy to help send journalist/reporter Shi Tao to hard labor in a Chinese prison along with Wang Xiaoning a Chinese dissident calling for democratic reform and an end to single-party rule merely to protect their bottom line.

Yahoo Officials Defend Role in Chinese Journalist Jailing
Two top officials with the internet giant Yahoo were called before Congress Tuesday to testify on their role in the jailing of a Chinese journalist. Shi Tao was sentenced to ten years after Yahoo passed on his email and internet protocol address to Chinese officials. Speaking before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Yahoo CEO Jerry Yang and General Counsel Michael Callahan defended Yahoo’s role. Shi Tao’s mother was sitting in the room. At the urging of Congressmember Tom Lantos, Yang and Callahan bowed their heads to her in apology. Lantos told the pair: “While technologically and financially you are giants, morally you are pygmies.”

Finally, And what was not public at the time of Callahan’s testimony (but was presumably known by Yahoo! execs like him) was that, prior to the Shi Tao investigation, Chinese police had requested (and were given) information about at least three other dissidents in clearly-identified “subversion” cases — much less ambiguous in their targeting of political dissidents. (See this post for more details.) In other words, the Shi Tao request was not made in a vacuum: in addition to not having “no information” about that particular investigation, Yahoo! also cannot claim to have “no information” about the other investigations into dissident activity that preceded it. Fucking liars.
