According to the Washington Post this morning:
BERLIN, Jan. 31 -- German prosecutors on Wednesday said they have issued arrest warrants for 13 CIA operatives suspected of kidnapping a German citizen in the Balkans in 2004 and taking him to a secret prison in Afghanistan before realizing several months later that they had the wrong person.
ARD public television reported that investigators worked from passport photocopies made by a hotel where the suspects stayed. The report gave what it said were the cover names of three men who were pilots and lived in North Carolina.
According to Irish RTE News:
Most of the CIA employees sought live in the US state of North Carolina, however the German arrest warrants are not valid in the US and US authorities have refused to co-operate with the investigation.
Blogger Dancewater has a good summary of the connections between the CIA rendition program and North Carolina which was also posted to Daily Kos. The group STOP TORTURE NOW has been most active in highlighting the abuses and the North Carolina connection. Verla Insko is one of a group of Legislators who signed a letter asking Attorney General Roy Cooper and the Governor to investigate North Carolina companies involved in the rendition program.
A copy of the letter dated January 18th and signed by 22 legislators is located at Laura Leslie's Isaac Hunter's Tavern blog at WUNC
