57. interesting question

We have made fewer advances on this issue in Europe, but some progress has been made. Our extradition treaties with Ireland, Italy, and the Netherlands permit the extradition of nationals in some circumstances, and our recent treaty with Switzerland contemplates extradition of nationals whenever the requested state is unable to prosecute in lieu of extradition. However, most recent treaties with European countries such as Austria, Cyprus, France, and Luxembourg permit but do not require extradition of nationals, and those countries currently have no discretion under their internal law to extradite their nationals. These new treaties do recognize that if either treaty partner denies extradition solely on nationality grounds, it is obligated to submit the case to its competent authorities for purposes of prosecution under its domestic laws if requested.

And Richard Perle has a Home in France. :shrug:
