Italy issues kidnapping warrant for 13 CIA officers

And remember, these are our Coalition allies!
Italy Judge Orders Arrest of 13 CIA Agents.
>> First the CIA agents allegedly seized the imam off the streets of Milan and bundled him into a van. Then they sent him to Egypt, where he said he was tortured. Then the agents, who racked up $144,984 in hotel bills, reportedly went to Venice to celebrate. <<

Here's the original: Click here!

and the follow-up:
Italians feel betrayed by CIA; Officials worked with agency on counterterrorism before Egyptian cleric disappeared.

>> The extraordinary decision by an Italian judge to order the arrest of 13 people linked to the CIA in the case of the kidnapping of a terrorism suspect dramatizes a growing rift between American counterterrorism officials and their counterparts in Europe. <<

The second one makes more of the point -- that our unilateral actions are act to hinder our war on terror. Our CIA is not sufficiently "in the know" for us to go it alone.

but this should provide a wide array of choices.

What YOU should try to remember is that in addition to not being privy to all the FACTS you should really try to remember that until convicted of something they are innocent. They are not terrorists running around executing innocent bystanders and they are conducting the government's business.

Sometimes that government business is something that must be done that those protected in academic environments from harsh reality can't understand and are unwilling to offer to do themselves.

Interesting..........

In reply to: Italy issues kidnapping warrant for 13 CIA officers

...in listening to a video/audio trac on the www of this
report, they reported a 'witness' seeing a mini-van and
men in robes and long beards with the subject.

Recently, don't know which channel, while surfing, I came
upon a report of somewhere in the dark side of the world,
'operatives' wearing robes and sporting long beards were
filmed 'escorting' a surprised individual.

Coincidents, huh.

Should find those 'operatives' and send them to Afghan and
Iraq to bring in the people everyone is supposedly looking
for.

I ''hear'' the Italian claim that this interrupted and
interferred with an on-going investigation they had
underway. If someone pulled something similar in the
US, and we found out later, the screams would be heard
around the world.

I have had a question for some time: Does a person
become a ''bad guy'' and then an ''Imam'' or an ''Imam'' first ?

One of the problems with Islam, Del

In reply to: Interesting..........

is that it's much like chiropractic medicine -- there's no established hierarchy or approved interpretation of the Koran, so imams come in all stripes. To a lesser extent, Christian Churches have had the same problem -- few outside Northern ireland probably see Ian Paisley's views as representative of Christ's teachings, and the same was true of numerous Souther preachers during the 60's.

Let me get this straight, Kidd...

In reply to: Is this the same judge who demanded that the US tank crew

...are you saying a US M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank fired on a hotel in Iraq and this Italian Judge in Italy demanded that tank crew appear before him in Italy???? All I have to say is let this tank crew be in ''contempt'' of the court and that judge send his law enforcement people to Iraq to pick the crew up...like stand outside the M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank screaming, ''your under arrest'' while the tank is all buttoned up...LOL...Like...BRING IT ON!!!

In reply to: Let me get this straight, Kidd...

journalists were injured when the tank fired. There are some legal proceedings, and the judge has demanded that the crew appear in his court to answer questions about why they fired, etc.

"However, U.S. sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity told CNN Thursday that the CIA obtained the approval of Italian intelligence counterparts before capturing the cleric.

The sources said that was routine in such cases, known as "renditions," and that American and Italian officials agreed that if the matter ever became public, the CIA and Italian intelligence would decline comment, or deny knowledge, the sources said."
