Germany Seeks Arrest of 13 CIA Agents in Kidnapping Case A German court has issued arrest warrants for 13 Americans, thought to be CIA agents or contract operatives. The case involves " extraordinary rendition ," in which American agents seize terror suspects in a foreign country and transport them to a third country for interrogation. US insistence that they have not been tortured has been met with great skepticism. The 13 warrants were issued in the case of a German citizen seized in Macedonia.
