"I thought spies got trials? At least they do in civilized countries"
Be careful what you say. In the United States of all places you are no longer gaurenteed a trail. According to the NDAA signed by Obama and openly supported by Romney the government can detain you and hold you indefinately without trial. The United States has carried out assassinations of American citizens without trial. Don't be so sure our wildly out of control government doesn't do the same things our enemies do.
