Solomon's sauce

It's too bad Solomon is dead, because this situation is tailor-made for him. An Italian court decides that 22 CIA agents have crossed the line from legitimate anti-terrorism into illegality: kidnapping for the purpose of torturing a suspect. The euphemism for this is extraordinary rendition. Whatever Alberto Gonzales may opine, kidnapping and torture are illegal. Conveniently, the agents learned of their indictment and left the country ahead of the carabinieri. The United States, despite the international extradition treaties it signed and demands that other nations honor is unlikely to extradite these agents. That would seem to leave the Italians only one recourse. Extraordinary rendition.
