In 2003, CIA agents kidnapped an Egyptian citizen from a street in Milan where he was living! Italy had granted him asylum from persecution by the Mubarak regime. The CIA then rendered their kidnapped victim back to Egypt where he was interrogated and tortured. Italian authorities criminally charged the CIA agents with kidnapping, and after the US refused to turn them over for trial, they were convicted in abstentia. One of them, Milan CIA station chief Robert Lady, was sentenced to several years in prison.
Lady was in Panama and when the Italians learned of this, they requested his extradition to Italy. (Panama has no extradition treaty with Italy)
The US government intervened and applied significant pressure to Panamanian officials, who, yesterday, predictably released Lady and put him on a plane back to the US.
P U stinks to high heavens!
