Italy Convicts 23 Americans, Most Working for C.I.A., of Abducting Muslim Cleric

I hope this acts as a wake-up call to the C.I.A. Though it probably won’t because the litigation is being carried out in Italian courts, and C.I.A. officials are pretending this is all just one big mistake, this high-profile situation should cause more scrutiny for an agency rife with historical and current misdeeds.

But even though this should be a victory for justice, exaggerated claims are tainting the plaintiff’s cause. Mr. Nasr and his wife are seeking a combined total of $21.4 million. This is ridiculous. I think amounts like this are ridiculous in any case. It significantly shifts the justice system away from actual justice and into a sordid betting game.
