ROME - An Italian judge on Friday ordered the arrests of 13 CIA officers for secretly transporting a Muslim preacher from Italy to Egypt as part of U.S. anti-terrorism efforts - a rare public objection to the practice by a close American ally.



The Egyptian was spirited away in 2003, purportedly as part of the CIA's "extraordinary rendition" program in which terror suspects are transferred to third countries without court approval, subjecting them to possible torture.

The arrest warrants were announced Friday by the Milan prosecutor's office, which has called the disappearance a kidnapping and a blow to a terrorism investigation in Italy. The office said the imam was believed to belong to an Islamic terrorist group.

The 13 are accused of seizing Osama Moustafa Hassan Nasr, known as Abu Omar, on a Milan street on Feb. 17, 2003, and sending him to Egypt, where he reportedly was tortured, Milan prosecutor Manlio Claudio Minale said in a statement.

The U.S. Embassy in Rome and the CIA in Washington declined to comment.

Finally Somebody that Shows their Teeth to the Allmighty CIA.

Even after the Incidenc in Iraq, when the shooting resulted in death of a italian secret service agaent, Italy is still a big USA Ally.

But Mister Berlusconi is acting quite different then the People of Italy would like him to.

Can an Italian Judge really make a serious movie in this battle of Truths and Rights?

It's one thing to order the arrest.

It's an entirely different thing to catch them, especially since they have most likely left the country.

The Italians knew in advance of the CIA's operation. Sorry to take your thunder away Soul:

WashingtonPost

"Before a CIA paramilitary team was deployed to snatch a radical Islamic cleric off the streets of Milan in February 2003, the CIA station chief in Rome briefed and sought approval from his counterpart in Italy, according to three CIA veterans with knowledge of the operation and a fourth who reviewed the matter after it took place.

The previously undisclosed Italian involvement undercuts the accusation, which has fueled public resentment in Italy toward the United States, that the CIA brashly slipped into the country unannounced and uninvited to kidnap an Italian resident off the street...."

Hmmmmm...

Italy presses US on 'CIA kidnap'



The Italian government has asked Washington for an explanation of the alleged abduction by CIA agents of an Egyptian Islamic cleric in 2003.

Officials in Rome say they had no prior knowledge of the operation, in which Osama Mustafa Hassan was reportedly flown to Egypt for interrogation.

Carlo Giovanardi, Italy's minister for relations with parliament, was quoted by AP news agency as telling senators that neither the Italian government nor its intelligence services knew about the operation.
