Raymond Davis Nears Trial, U.S. Scrambling

LAHORE: A Pakistani court on Thursday said that the murder trial of a CIA contractor would go ahead, despite the insistence of the US government that he has diplomatic immunity.

The issue of his claim to diplomatic immunity is pending before the Pakistani High Court which is due to rule on it on March 14.
According to one Pakistani source of The Washington Post’s David Ignatius, Davis going to trial would be an "atomic bomb” for U.S.-Pakistani relations. A little humbleness from an obstinate Washington could go a long way.
