    "We are disappointed by the verdicts against the Americans and Italians charged in Milan for their alleged involvement in the case involving Egyptian cleric Abu Omar," State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said, according to Reuters.

    "The judge has not yet issued a written opinion so we're not in a position to comment further on the decision."

    An Italian judge on Wednesday convicted 23 Americans in absentia of the 2003 kidnapping of an Egyptian cleric from a Milan street, in a landmark case involving the CIA's extraordinary rendition program in the war on terrorism.

    Citing diplomatic immunity, Judge Oscar Magi told the Milan courtroom Wednesday that he was acquitting three other Americans.

    Former Milan CIA station chief, Robert Seldon Lady, received eight years in prison. The other 22 convicted American defendants each received a five-year sentence.

    Are you going to explain why you called Bro. Curtis a bigot and Bush his hero?

    ROFL. Off topic and smoke blowing again. You posted the OP so you must have a reason. What is it?

    Until you explain yourself or recant and apologize you'll get no more responses. I am not going to be a part of letting you avoid Bro. Curtis's requests for explanations. You need to respond to him.

    Well, seeing as how you have never answered a question I have ask you in 2 years I doubt seriously you would answer regardless of what I do or do not do.

    Goodbye Rev.

    ummm....a thread as recent as of today is proof to the contrary. Nice lie though. runs along the same vein as your comments about Bro. Curtis you refuse to answer for.

    If the Obama administration had any guts, they'd tell the Italians to go suck eggs.

    I think that is what it did - just said it more diplomatically than that. :)

    We know the twice-banned C.T.Boy will never explain, or apologize for his remarks. That's what makes his demands ridiculous, and him irrelevant.

    Thank, Mitch. It's time we put pressure on these drive-by posters, masquerading as "rational" debaters.
