According to NBC, “Bob Lady was the only CIA official (of the 26) the Italian Ministry of Justice sought for arrest.” When we researched this film it was quite clear that Lady’s counterparts in Italy were seriously angry with him for lying to their face about the whereabouts of Abu Omar who they had been close to arresting. Lady had told Italian intelligence that CIA intelligence placed Abu Omar in the Balkans. So interesting that they seem to be getting payback here. I wonder if this case will actually proceed, however, to extradition. Nothing at this point can embarrass US any further as the trial has already happened and Lady has been sentenced, so maybe US won’t fight it. We’ll see.
