Ex-CIA Officer Says US Allowing Italy to Send Her to Prison

Ex-CIA Officer Says US Allowing Italy to Send Her to PrisonA former CIA officer who was convicted for helping the agency abduct a terrorism suspect off the streets of Milan lost her extradition battle Wednesday and said she fears she’ll end up in an Italian prison while the U.S. government sits on the sidelines. Sabrina de Sousa was one of 26 American officials convicted in absentia for the “extraordinary rendition” by the CIA of Osama Mustafa Hassan Nasr, a radical Egyptian cleric, who later claimed Egyptian officials tortured him after being handed over by the U.S. spy agency in 2003. De Sousa’s lawyers have for years tried to persuade Barack Obama’s administration to support her.
