Germany: US Won't Extradite CIA Suspects

This administration behaves like the rogue governments it likes to condemn. It's acting like a terrorist in the name of fighting terrorism. This is not how a democracy is supposed to behave, especially with other democracies. Isn't any of this Impeachable. Never mind, it isn't going to happen:
U.S. authorities have informed Germany that they will not extradite 13 suspected CIA agents sought in the alleged kidnapping of a German citizen, an official said Saturday.

Munich prosecutors issued warrants for the arrest of the 13 at the end of January, accusing the unidentified suspects of wrongfully imprisoning Khaled el-Masri and causing him serious bodily harm.

[...]El-Masri, a German citizen of Lebanese descent, maintains that he was abducted in December 2003 at the Serbian-Macedonian border and flown by the CIA to a detention center in Kabul, Afghanistan, where he was abused.

He says he was released in Albania in May 2004, and that his captors told him he was seized in a case of mistaken identity.
