German DA Files Arrest Warrants Against CIA Agents
The District Attorney's office in Munich, Germany has filed international arrest warrants with Interpol for nine CIA operatives. This is a big deal. The Agents are wanted for questioning and potential charges arising from the illegal, CIA kidnapping of a Lebanese-born German citizen. This case has roiled already tense diplomatic waters, and following on the heels of a similar case in Italy, adds considerable new fuel to the CIA "renditions scandal." Even more astonishing, German investigators were able to use simple, Internet search tools without the help of the US Justice Department (of course, no surprise there) to identify key CIA players in this caper from hell. Now that's embarrassing. Read about it all here, in a very eye-opening Der Spiegel article.
