22 Euro-wide Arrest Warrants Issued Against American CIA Agents
Once upon a time, one would have thought that news of the simultaneous issuing of 22 Europe-wide arrest warrants warranted world-wide, mainstream media headlines -- on a massive scale.
Especially since all 22 suspects cited in said warrants were actually American CIA agents. And particularly in view of the fact that the wide ranging warrants allow for said suspects apprehension and detention - absolutely anywhere across the entire European Union's 25 seperate, member nations.
Well, we did say 'once upon a time,' didn't we?
Because here's an example of today's BBC's boldest efforts to bring out big news, in the current crazy days of these Bush-Blair-Berlusconi, post 9/11 times.
EU-wide warrant over 'CIA kidnap'The news report in question continued:
Abu Omar was allegedly kidnapped from a Milan streetAn Italian court has issued Europe-wide arrest warrants for 22 suspected CIA agents accused of helping to kidnap a Muslim cleric in Milan in 2003.
The suspects are accused of abducting Osama Mustafa Hassan, also known as Abu Omar, without Italian permission, and flying him to Egypt for interrogation.Then there was this:
The new warrants allow for the suspects' detention anywhere in the 25-nation EU, a prosecutor said.Sad to say though, as nowadays seems all too often to be the case, the individual most actively involved in attempting to activate full investigations - and perhaps help highlight further the increasingly, all pervading political hypocrisy of our appointed premiers, presidents, etc - is summarily 'sidelined' by his seniors.
The authorities had already issued arrest orders within Italy.
But to say 'sidelined' - is probably to put it far too politely. We Brits have a better word for this sort of personal sniping - albeit it Anglo-Saxon slang - we call it 'slagged'.
Some may use even stronger language, and choose to say 'shit upon'.
Read the rest of this 'arrest warrant' report, and see for yourself how such significant stories are swiftly spun into insignificant ones, by the vested interests' parties.
