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.

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.
