CIA Kidnapping Leaves Ex-Terror Suspect a Broken Man: Radical imam Abu Omar was kidnapped by the CIA in Milan four years ago and taken to a prison in Egypt. (Matthias Gebauer, 3/20/07, Der Spiegel)

The imam was certainly no docile pacifist: For years he had preached messages of hate against the United States to fundamentalist Muslims in Milan. He fought in Afghanistan himself, and he's said to have encouraged young recruits of jihad to do the same.

Broken is a nice start, but why is he still alive?
