    Ex-CIA station boss in Milan arrested in Panama: Italian government

    Ex-CIA station boss in Milan arrested in Panama: Italian government | Fox News

    Seems the former CIA station chief in Italy conducted the kidnapping of an Egyptian Imam in Italy and transported him to Egypt where he was tortured.

    In absentia, the station chief was sentenced to prison for 9 years.

    The Italian government has asked Panama to hold him until they issue a request for extradition.

    Seems the American government is putting pressure on Panama not to agree to the extradition request.

    Funny, when the American government wants Edward Snowden returned, it is the moral and legal responsibility for Russia, Hong Kong, and others to return him but an American man who's been convicted of a crime in Italy, likely ordered by the CIA, the US wants Panama to ignore that moral and legal responsibility.

    I'll admit it's hypocritical, but former CIA means he's a security risk. If he were a regular jack off, I'd say throw him to the wolves. This is a guy we don't want in foreign hands. No telling what he knows, and what he would reveal once he realized that the US told him to go **** himself.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    It is hypocritical, but consistent too - America wants to ensure that the secret way it operates isn't devulged.

    Nobody wants their intelligence agents in foreign hands.

    It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

    There is no guarantee that Panama will not send this guy to Italy.

    Very true - there is no extradition treaty between Panama and Italy. While the "crime" took place during the Bush administration shortly after 9/11, it doesn't look good in comparison to Obama's moralizing on the Snowden return.

    Im sure those people would be smart enough to know what happened if they opened their mouth. And would probably be watched anyways.

    And nobody wants their intelligence agents to act in accordance with the law either, at least these days.

    I'm also sure that the people he talked to would promise some kind of leniency or protection in exchange for the information. People also do stupid things when they're locked up. Especially when they think it will get them a reduced sentence.

    They can put two in the back of his head for all I care. Just as long as he's not there shooting his ****ing mouth off to all the wrong people.
