For those that think that torture and the foregoing of due process when handling terror suspects is the way we need to proceed, which is exactly what the Bush Administration is pushing for in Congress, should probably talk to former terror suspect and Canadian citizen Maher Arar. He has first hand knowledge of those policies.
Arar, now 36, was detained by U.S. authorities as he changed planes in New York on Sept. 26, 2002. He was held for questioning for 12 days, then flown by jet to Jordan and driven to Syria. He was beaten, forced to confess to having trained in Afghanistan — where he never has been — and then kept in a coffin-size dungeon for 10 months before he was released, the Canadian inquiry commission found.
