Question: Does the United States have a reaction to the Italian court decision upholding the guilty verdicts against 23 Americans for their alleged kidnapping of an Egyptian Muslim cleric?

Answer: We have seen reports about this decision, but have not seen a copy of the court’s opinion and have no basis for commenting.
