Germany issues warrants for 13 American CIA agents

Here is the daily good news.
========================
It was established at the Nuremberg that simple excuse of "following
the orders" will not save your skin from crimes.
You must at ALL TIMES work according to the International law and also
in the USA according to the constitution, no matter who your boss is
and what he tells you to do.

Can someone remind me what CIA stands for? ... Is it Criminal
International Agency ?

Germany issues warrants for 13 Americna CIA agents

31 January 2007

Munich (dpa) - German prosecutors on Wednesday issued arrest warrants
for 13 people believed to have been working for the American security
service the CIA in connection with the 2003 abduction of German
national.

The 13 suspects were crew and passengers on an aircraft which flew the
victim - Khaled el-Masri who was detained as a terrorism suspect -
from Macedonia to Afghanistan.

Germany's NDR TV said 11 men and two women were listed in the arrest
warrant. Prosecutors suspect most of the names are CIA aliases. Among
those listed are a Kirk James Bird, James Ohale, James Fairing, Jane
Payne und Patricia Riloy.

Prosecutors are attempting to determine the real names of the 13
people who are accused of false imprisonment and torture.

German officials say they expect little help from the US and the 13
are unlikely to be detained unless they return to a European Union
country.

El-Masri's lawyer hailed the move.

"German authorities will not accept the criminal activities of CIA
agents against a German citizen," said Manfred Gnijdic.

El-Masri was detained on the Macedonian-Serbian border in December
2003 and was then reportedly flown to Kabul in a plane which arrived
from the Spanish airport at Palma de Mallorca.

A Muslim of Lebanese origin who lives in southern Germany, el-Masri
says he was imprisoned by US agents in Macedonia and tortured in
Afghanistan, then released. He said the Americans accused him of being
a terrorist.

A parliamentary inquiry into the case has been told that then US
ambassador to Germany, Daniel Coats, informed Berlin officials on May
31, 2004 that el-Masri had been mistakenly detained, then freed.
