Who Sent the CIA Thugs?
Italy's prime minister demands that the U.S. explain CIA criminality in his country
by Nat Hentoff

A half-dozen agents wearing hoods that covered their faces stepped down from [the CIA Gulfstream V jet] and hurried across the tarmac to take custody of two prisoners, suspected Islamic radicals from Egypt. . . . Swedish officers watched as the CIA operatives pulled out scissors and rapidly sliced off the prisoners' clothes, including their underwear. . . . They probed inside the men's mouths and ears . . . before . . . draping hoods over their heads. The suspects were then marched in chains to the plane, where they were strapped to mattresses on the floor.
