An excerpt from http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012 … tates.html
Arar, a Canadian citizen born in Syria in 1970, came to Canada in 1987. After earning bachelor's and master's degrees in computer engineering, he worked in Ottawa as a telecommunications engineer.
On a stopover in New York as he was returning to Canada from a vacation in Tunisia in September 2002, U.S. officials detained Arar, claiming he had links to al-Qaeda, and deported him to Syria, even though he was carrying a Canadian passport.
When Arar returned to Canada more than a year later, he said he had been tortured during his incarceration and accused American officials of sending him to Syria knowing that they practise torture.
Should the U.S. apologies?
He was picked up in New York. No charges filed, no evidence presented. No proof.
Not even Habeus Corpus!
I weep for the loss of our Rights. Guilty until proven innocent....
He sued the Canadian govt. for their part in his torture and was awarded $10 million. The Canadian govt. would not have paid if Arar were innocent.
Wait. The Canadian government would not have paid if Arar were innocent?
Or was guilty?
Glad to know someone still believes in the justice system.
I've seen plenty of guilty people get settlements.
Not saying he is one. Just sayin'.

I don't know much about it, except what I have read from others. But as it sounds like it threatens US sovereignty and safety. I am against it. And also for the very reason that I don't get to vote on it. What is...
