On June 24, 2005, “an Italian judge in Milan issued arrest warrants for thirteen CIA agents on charges of kidnapping, stemming from the CIA’s 2003 rendition of an Islamic cleric known as ‘Abu Omar.’ Italy had given the Muslim cleric asylum, but the American operation had snatched him and flown him to Egypt, where he claimed he had been brutally tortured.”
