terrorism cooperation insufficient

Italian and Spanish counter-terrorism officials have publicly criticized the US for being insufficiently cooperative on terrorism investigations and prosecutions. Other Europeans, at a counter-terrorism conference in Italy, said the US didn't share evidence because "Washington was placing too much emphasis on holding terrorism suspects in CIA custody or elsewhere instead of prosecuting them in criminal court."

Not to mention other nifty US tactics like snatching suspected terrorists from the territory of allied countries like Italy -- without permission of the Italian government. Wonder how we'd react if Italy did the same thing in Chicago?
