WASHINGTON - While insisting that Raymond Davis has diplomatic immunity, a major American newspaper Saturday called for US and Pakistani intelligence to work out a face-saving arrangement for the release of the CIA contractor who is charged with committing double murder in Lahore. The cloak-and-dagger circumstances of the Davis incident make an unambiguous result unlikely, The Boston Globe said in an editorial. The best outcome would be for US and Pakistani intelligence to work out a face-saving arrangement for Daviss repatriation - and acknowledge that the two sides need each other too much, against Al Qaeda and like-minded extremists, to let the Davis case become an irreparable rupture. At the same time, The Globe acknowledged the problem Pakistan would face in case Davis was released. If Raymond Davis eludes prosecution in Pakistan, the popular reaction there may be furious, it said. Yet the Obama administration is right to press for his return. The murky incident is part of a far larger breach between US and Pakistani intelligence services, and Davis himself appears entitled to diplomatic immunity from prosecution. The two shooting victims may have been robbers - or may have been working for the ISI, Pakistans intelligence agency. ISI chiefs were already resentful that Davis and hundreds of other CIA agents and contractors have entered Pakistan with diplomatic visas and without the ISIs knowledge. The Davis case has only deepened the mistrust. Yet Daviss fate should hinge on the US governments claim of immunity for him under the Vienna Convention, without which accredited diplomats could be framed or otherwise manipulated by local authorities.
