    Well, I certainly haven't read that anywhere. Please link to where you read or heard this. That would be interesting.

    I read about this a few days ago, but then, reading this story something didn't sound kosher. It's this bit...



    So, reading between the lines, he was a spy, right? Or wrong? Can anyone else decipher the coded language in this story?



    his storyline reads CIA, I have a few friends who went that route.

    Ah! That's what I guessed, but frankly I wouldn't know. If so, why can't he claim diplomatic immunity?

    I think "murder" if that's what it is, is not covered under immunity. If he is cia, this story will quickly just disapate.

    Thank you for that. It does appear that the guy would be due diplomatic immunity had the alleged offence not been so serious. I seems to be members of Congress rather than the US administration calling for his release and threatening aid payments, but that could change. All very interesting.

    But he won't be released, will he?

    If he's cia? probably... but you will never hear about it.

    The possibilities are numerous...

    A military attaché
    A CIA/DIA/DSS officer
    A private contractor sent by Washington (beltway hire)
    A mercenary working for US embassy staff (local hire)

    The indie is talking veiled threats rather than actual withholding of aid.

    " ..."His plea has been rejected by police investigators. He gave no chance to them to survive. That is why we consider it was not self-defence," said Mr Tareen. "We have proof it was not self-defence. It was cold-blooded murder."

    The police chief's comments followed a 30-minute closed-door court hearing in which a judge ordered the 36-year-old American, who worked at the US consulate in Lahore, be detained in jail for another two weeks. Judge Anik Anwar also demanded the Pakistani government tell the court whether or not Mr Davis has diplomatic immunity.

    In the aftermath of the incident on 27 January, in which Mr Davis shot dead two men who approached him on a motorbike using a semi-automatic Glock pistol, the US has insisted the former special forces soldier was employed as a "technical adviser" at the consulate and had immunity from prosecution under the Vienna Convention.

    As Pakistan has continued to refuse to accommodate Washington's request, so the arm-twisting has increased with veiled warnings about the possible impact on American aid to Islamabad and the possible cancellation of a meeting planned for next month between President Asif Ali Zardari and Barack Obama. On Thursday, Pakistan's ambassador to the US, Husain Haqqani, was forced to deny a report that US national security adviser Tom Donilon had threatened to expel him from the country if Mr Davis was not released.
    ...Much remains unclear about the incident and the precise role held at the consulate by Mr Davis, who many believe is an intelligence operative. Public records reveal he and his wife own a Las Vegas-registered company called Hyperion Protective Services.

    While he initially told police he feared for his life, investigators have said he shot the second Pakistani in the back as he tried to flee. Photographs that Mr Davis took of the two men he killed along with a video recording of him taken by police shortly after the incident have been leaked to the media...."
