    I never thought of anything like that. Are you serious, Richard?

    There were what? 12 other CIA convicted in Italy too?  And among them are some interesting characters.  There have been stories floating around about how one of them is the woman who was credited with getting bin Laden, or the woman who was temporarily promoted to the #2 position at CIA (who didn't end up getting the job, recently).  I can't remember if the speculators ever worked that out or not. There was some confusion about it.

    Fact is more interesting than fiction, at times.  

    So if Robert Seldon Lady was listed on Interpol, why did he feel so confident traveling outside the US?  Was there an understanding, in the past, between the US and Central American/South American countries not to pick him up, but after the major problems with forcing Morales plane down, and the threats to countries about giving Snowden asylum, all bets are off?

      The trials of Lady, 59, now retired from the CIA, and two other Americansin the case brought the first convictions anywhere in the world against agents involved in the agency's extraordinary rendition program, a practice alleged to have led to torture.

        and the version I saw on MSNBC, 22 out of 26 agents allegedly involved were convicted.
