ROME - Italy's highest criminal court on Wednesday upheld the convictions of 23 Americans in the abduction of an Egyptian terror suspect from a Milan street as part of the CIA's extraordinary rendition program, paving the way to possible extradition requests by Italian authorities.
Milan Prosecutor Armando Spataro, one of Italy’s top anti-terrorism magistrates who shaped the prosecution, hailed the top court’s decision, saying it was tantamount to a finding that extraordinary rendition ‘‘is incompatible with democracy.’’http://www.boston.com/news/world/europe ... story.html
That is so true, & iv made that point myself.
If the USA starts going around putting a fatwa and getting the grand jury to put out a arrest / kill on sight order on every person they feel has embarrassed the USA, then be ready for the tables to turn.
A country can't just expect that they can label citizens of other country's criminals & have them extradited & then tortured & or killed & not think this will set the rules of diplomacy for many years to come.
What happens to U.S military personnel accused of war crimes, ..... no longer will the USA be able to have it's personal tried in secret, in a U.S military court ........ justice will be dished out by others from now on, according to local laws.
If a US marine, raps a young girl in Japan ..... No more US military court ..... Local Justice.
When a US solider kills innocent reporters in Iraq ......... No more US millitary court ..... Local Justice.
When US military personal get drunk on leave & get into a bar fight with locals ..... No more US millitary court ..... Local Justice.
The USA can't expect to change the rules to suit it self, & not think the rest of the world wont do the same.
After all ...... that is why the British government decided not to revoke Ecuador's diplomatic immunity over its diplomatic office in London where Julian Assange is now living.
because had it removed Ecuador's diplomatic immunity & embassy status & then raided the office looking for Julian Assange.
Well, that would then mean all country's could also, remove the Diplomatic status of British embassy from around the world. & raid the British embassy for intelligence & diplomatic secrets.
A case of whats good for the goose ......
Thus opening a loophole, that could never be closed. ( which is what the USA is Doing regarding julian Assange. )
Meaning these new rules & definitions will also apply to all Americans, military, government or civilian.
