Italian Judge Issues Warrants For 22 CIA Operatives For Kidnapping Egyptian "Cleric"

This sort of story makes me happy.

Because I didn't think Bush actually had the balls to authorize this sort of mission on friendly soil. But he does, Cheney love him.

The Italian judge is quite right to issue the warrants. The CIA agents acted completely illegally on Italian sovereign soil. So I'm not at all angry at his decision. Protecting and enforcing your state's laws is the first priority of a judge.

But I'm just delighted Bush ordered this, and I'm glad the CIA agents, save one, are, now, apparently nowhere to be found.

Prosecutors have identified one of them as Robert Seldon Lady, a former CIA station chief in Milan who has since returned to the United States.

The whereabouts of the others are unknown. Lady's attorney, Daria Pesce, said the new warrants meant the alleged operatives could no longer travel to Europe without risking arrest.

"That's the only problem," she said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

Yep. That's the way I see it.

Prosecutors allege that Nasr, a cleric believed to belong to an Islamic terror group, was flown from Italy to a military base in Germany before being put on a flight to Egypt, where he was tortured.

F'n bonus, baby.
