Defendant's drug and money laundering sentence is affirmed where: 1) the doctrine of specialty did not operate to bar consideration of all pre-extradition conduct when determining a defendant's punishment for the extradited offense; 2) the district court properly calculated defendant's offense level and criminal history and correctly determined his advisory Guidelines sentencing range; and 3) the district court's discussion of the 18 U.S.C. section 3553(a) factors was sufficient to comply with 18 U.S.C. section 3584 and U.S.S.G. section 5G1.3.
