Who is Abu Omar? Extracts from the Italian Police Surveillance Tapes

Posted by John Rosenthal

Osama Mostafa Hassan Nasr, better known as "Abu Omar", is the Egyptian cleric who was allegedly kidnapped in Milan in 2003 as part of the CIA "extraordinary renditions" program. Starting in 2002, Abu Omar was under intensive surveillance by the Italian police. Examination of the transcripts of his recorded conversations provides a clearer idea of just what he was up to before he went missing and why Italian authorities have issued a warrant for his arrest. The charge: involvement in international terrorism. See my new report with extensive translated excerpts from the Italian surveillance tapes on World Politics Review here.
