Italy's highest court confirmed the guilty verdicts Wednesday of 23 CIA agents tried in absentia for the 2003 abduction of Egyptian imam Osama Mustafa Hassan (pictured) in Milan. The United States has already refused to extradite the agents.

Italy has learned from history and gone with the rule of law; the U.S. has gutted haebus corpus and re-instituted Star Chamber courts. It's easy to see which of these countries is the enlightened democracy.
The US accuses Iranian agents of conspiring to kill Saudi ambassedor and bombings in India.
However, the US cannot even make a charge sheet or hold a grand jury to indict Iranian nationals, much less ask Iran for their extradition.
Cute stunt Italy! When you get another country to defend yours for decades this is what happens...
Sir, actually rendition started under President Clinton, not President Bush.
I refer you to the American Civil Liberties Union as one reference.
Don't ya' just love it?
Maybe obama will let the blind sheik go free and appease the muslims and Italians in one felled swoop.
I guess I'll have to vacation in Prague instead of Rome, then.
The US is a big, sort of rich country and Europe is a big, sort of rich compilation of countries--let us isolate for a generation or two and take care of internal issues. If we Americans had of kept out of two world wars that were none of our business the Italians could be enjoying Enlightened Fascism, Germany might still be fighting Russia and we yanks could continue in our "parochial ways".
The Hell with Europe. Yankee Stay home.
Come and get them, dipshits.
...right before they surrender to anyone who threatens them.
I guess you've proven something, just can't figure out what.
Why not cut off diplomatic relations with the U.S. and do Americans a real favor.
Time for uncle Sugar Daddy to cut off access to our stash.
Commendable. Undoubtedly, the US has applied and will continue to apply utmost pressure on Italian authorities to reverse this court decision.
The CIA, the US answer to the German SS, enjoys absolute immunity from prosecution in the US, notwithstanding its long and worsening record of war crimes, murder, kidnapping, etc. etc. etc. Every time the rest of the world calls out its crimes, and strives to hold actors responsible, is a step in the right direction.
Ah the once great Italy is becoming more irrelevant by the day.

Ah, did the Italians have deals with these terrorists.
US of A
ps - if it weren't for us, you'd be speaking German today.
F Italy and whoever is responsible for bringing charges upon these agents. So, italy is into protecting Muslim Fanatics now?
This is how a truly FREE country should uphold their laws !!
Less militarized countries should not be coerced by the perfidy of the CIA, nor fooled by the democracy charade that the USA feigns as a cover to maintain their petrol dollar scam,
