UNIMPORTANT WIKILEAKS DOCUMENT OF THE DAY: INTERPOL SEARCHES ARE NOT RELEVANT TO USA WHEN IT COMES TO 13 CIA KIDNAPPING TORTURERS!

The German SPIEGEL just released this follow-up story on the illegal kidnapping of German national Khaled el-Masri by the CIA, which resulted in the man undergoing torture and various other niceities at the hand of the American "Freedom Protectors".
Man könnte die Details aus der Depesche als Lappalien abtun, wenn die Realität sie nicht bestätigt hätten. Im 2007 entschied Justizministerin Brigitte Zypries (SPD), die 13 CIA-Agenten in ihrer Heimat nicht zu verfolgen. Zwar stehen ihre Namen auf einer Fahndungsliste von Interpol, doch für die USA hat die keine Gültigkeit. Die Amerikaner hätten klar gesagt, sie würden die 13 Agenten weder in Haft nehmen noch ausliefern, erklärte sie. Mit einer nicht gegebenen Aussicht auf Erfolg mache eine Bemühung um Auslieferung also keinen Sinn.
So, in 2007, German attorney general Brigitte Zypries had the 13 CIA agents put on an Interpol list after enormous presure by German media and investigative journalists, so these 13 kidnappers and torturers were not only protected by the US government (because, hell if "we" do it, it can't be wrong, even if it is illegal, but hell, even the German government officials wouldn't have filed any charges, so the cables reveal, thinking that el-Masri just was "shit out of luck".), the story reveals something that is also again utterly "unimportant" and "irrelevant", you know, like all the other information that the US media will not cover.

Want to know what that is?

It states here quite clearly that the United States government did not accept the Red Flag notices for those 13 CIA agents. Let me repeat that. If it is your own government thugs comitting crimes around the world, crimes that were irrefutable and proven, an "international manhunt" as your politicians and military leaders and fascist political commentators call the dogging of Julian Assange for "sex by surprise"...

.. doesn't mean a fucking thing.

Americans are allowed to kidnap. Americans are allowed to torture. Americans are allowed apparently everything under the sun. With the behind the scenes blessing of the German government at the time (which is pretty much an even worse government now).

Isn't it good that it is these people telling us what is legal and what isn't?
