Shamed by my country's actions
2003-11-08

The latest crap in this "war on some terrorists" is the story of Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen that the US deported to the Syrians to be tortured. Obviously its possible that the reporting so far is biased, but frankly deporting any citizen of one country to another country, especially to a torture state like Syria, is gross negligence at a minimum. I know we're not playing with the nicest people here, but there seems to be little difference to me between torturing someone during interrogation and sending him to somewhere else to be tortured. For more information:

- Canadian passport protected Arar from more severe torture, experts say
