What about Europol?

Europol is mainly a "support" unit, it gives intel to other units but does no active arresting itself.

I think I found out what the Italian bluff & bluster is about.

more info
The abrupt disappearance of Abu Omar angered prosecutors and anti-terrorism police in Milan, all of whom work independently of Berlusconi's central government, because the cleric was key to a case they were building against terrorist networks active in Italy. They suspected Abu Omar of recruiting suicide bombers for Iraq.

I also agree that there are several credible reports that Italy, and the EU concealed a deal with US to allow 'rendition' flights

The document, entitled New Transatlantic Agenda, EU-US meeting on Justice and Home Affairs, details the subjects discussed by the 31 people present. The agenda included the fight against terrorism, drug trafficking and extradition agreements.

The minutes of the Athens meeting on January 22, 2003, were written by the then Greek presidency of the EU after the talks with a US delegation headed by a justice department official. EU officials confirmed that a full account was circulated to all member governments, and would have been sent to the Home Office.

According to the full version, "Both sides agreed on areas where co-operation could be improved [inter alia] the exchange of data between border management services, increased use of European transit facilities to support the return of criminal/ inadmissible aliens, co-ordination with regard to false documents training and improving the co-operation in removals."

The Rest Of The Story

Very interesting perspective on all this.

Though I thought it all somewhat of a boring canard, you've given me something intriguing to chew on.

That is what members who are Way Above do, and indeed, you have earned my last WATS vote for the month for pushing past the propaganda.

Nicely done, and thanks for broadening my understanding of this subject.

Not to be brutally frank, but before the part in the thread where the info comes out that it was a nifty lil smoke screen. My thought process went something like this: Now I am pretty sure they have skynews in Italy, and on that channel they just watched for two solid weeks less than 3 months ago a portion of france erupt into riots at the (and you gotta admit it) darwin award worthy deaths of two immigrants.
Now they then see a huge scandal that they know they can be implicated in.... SO the basic political Cover Your Arse rules go into effect ... at which point a nationally known and known to be of the leaning of the target group to be appeased judge issues warrants... (at a huge gain in his popularity figures or whatever). Meanwhile in the big leagues a senior spokesman says the guy is a leftist and we didn't mean it... (not necessarilly gaining him ground but not costing him any either) but keeping the WOT cabal happy.


If they really wanted to do something about the agents they'd have arranged a hit 22 heads would have went by diplomatic pouch to DC and we'd have NEVER heard about it.

Ha Ha, did anyone happen to notice that the names of all but 2 of the "wanted" CIA agents are fakes? So the cover ID's are blown, that is all. Good Luck arresting them.

Chicago Tribune
From Italian and Spanish police reports and court documents, the Tribune was able to identify the names, and in some cases the post office box addresses, used by 67 suspected CIA rendition specialists who registered at hotels in Milan and on the island of Mallorca.

Some of the bogus identities appear to be inside jokes, with surnames such as "Grayman" and "Bland," or those of former CIA directors. One of the bogus identities is an apparent homage to Douglas Neidermeyer, the authoritarian ROTC commander in the movie "Animal House" who later is killed by his own troops in Vietnam.

A search of commercially available databases reveals no evidence that any of the named individuals ever has had a spouse, a residence, a telephone, a previous address, a mortgage, a credit history or a family.

Even though their listed birth dates place them in their 30s, 40s and 50s, none appears to have had a Social Security number before 1998.

Italy's head of counter-espionage at the military intelligence agency, and chief of an anti-terrorism unit have been arrested. The police also searched a newspaper office, and the editors home.
