The Mad Dogs of the CIA
The German weekly magazine Die Zeit reports that the German criminal police (BKA) placed a German national suspected of terrorism in protective custody to prevent his being kidnapped by the CIA.
Originally Egyptian, Reda Seyam was escorted by German police from Indonesia to Frankfurt. The Chancellery, under Gerhard Schröder, was informed of the operation. This German national was arrested in September 2002 by Indonesian police and interrogated by the CIA before being placed in police custody in Jakarta. According to the magazine, the CIA wanted to question him again. That someone is German or that a country's sovereignty is violated is of no interest to the Americans. They are like mad dogs, said a German policeman working in security.
