International Law: America's calling Harry Truman! Better get a lawyer

Our allies in Europe are trying to have CIA agents involved in extraordinary rendition extradited.  That is only the first step toward having the Administration officials on up to the former President charged.  We supply the army that defends them, they supply the lawyers that imprison our people for doing so. In a related story (at least I see it as related) the Germans have given up on plans to liberate the hostages held by Somalian pirates. Taking on the US is easy but the Somalian warlords are too tough for Germany's sorta-kinda army. I wonder if the people being held by the Somalian pirate will be able to sue anyone?
