Italy seeks ‘CIA kidnap agents’ 

Italian authorities have issued arrest warrants for 13 people they claim are agents “linked to the CIA”.

The suspects are accused of abducting an Islamic cleric in Milan in 2003 and flying him to Egypt for interrogation.

And it’s all for naught. Bush vows he’s ‘not giving up’ in Iraq. Translation: The US has lost but can’t admit it yet.
