Finally, Nosy Questions Are Being Asked


Now, at last, Senators Leahy and Feingold can perhaps hold the administration's feet to the fire about the Maher Arar case, wherin the Canadian government colluded with the US one to outsource a little torture work.
"We knew damn well if he went to Canada he wouldn't be tortured. He'd be held and he'd be investigated. We also knew damn well if he went to Syria, he'd be tortured. And it's beneath the dignity of this country, a country that has always been a beacon of human rights, to send somebody to another country to be tortured."

--Senator Patrick Leahy
