Italy Charges 26 Americans, Mostly CIA Officers, with Kidnapping

Hosted by

Twenty-six US citizens, most of them in the CIA, have been ordered to stand trial in Italy.  It's a case of "extraordinary rendition," in which an Egyptian cleric was seized on the streets of Milan and taken to Egypt, where he says he was tortured.  The former head of Italy's secret service has also been charged.  Stephen Grey is author of Ghost Plane: the True Story of the CIA Torture Program.
