How many hours before Emperor Berlusconi reverses this decision?

Thanks to NewsHounds, who watch FOX so that the rest of us don't have to. Italian Judge Orders 13 CIA Officers Arrested Friday, June 24, 2005 ROME — An Italian judge on Friday ordered the arrests of 13 CIA (search) officers for secretly transporting a Muslim preacher from Italy to Egypt as part of U.S. anti-terrorism efforts — a rare public objection to the practice by a close American ally. The Egyptian was spirited away in 2003, purportedly as part of the CIA's "extraordinary rendition (search)" program in which terror suspects are transferred to third countries without court approval, subjecting them to possible torture.
Note to Italian judge: Start taking the bus.
I saw this on the CBS evening news tonight and almost fainted.
