MILAN -- Italy's former military intelligence chief was sentenced to 10 years in prison Tuesday for his role in the kidnapping of an Egyptian Muslim cleric in an operation organized by the United States.

An American former CIA station chief was this month sentenced in absentia to seven years in jail after imam Abu Omar was snatched from a Milan street in 2003 and flown to Egypt for interrogation during the United States' "war on terror."

The Milan appeals court sentenced Niccolo Pollari, former head of the Sismi military intelligence agency, to 10 years in prison and his former deputy Marco Mancini to nine years.

The court also awarded a provisional 1 million euros ($1.3 million) in damages to the imam, the Ansa news wire reported, as well as 500,000 euros to the imam's wife.

3. What you really want is the former station chief to turn states evidence in exchange for naming as

many superiors as possible they get suspended sentence. Then you want those superiors to turn states evidence etc., until you get to the Bush admin itself. Then we throw those guys in jail.

4. I think that may be what you really want

I really want someone involved to go to jail, preferably via being renditioned to Italy.

And, more than a few of the lackeys who did the actual kidnapping and torturing.
