“TODAY’S DISHONESTY”

Robert Fisk: Galloway a victim of Canada’s baffling approach to fighting terror

there’s a bigger issue. Canada helped the US send an innocent Canadian citizen, Mahar Arar, to “rendition” in Syria, where he was savagely tortured. Only a few days ago, another Canadian Muslim told me how he was whipped with steel cables in Damascus as his torturers read out questions from the Canadian embassy. Yet another Canadian Muslim citizen, Abousfian Abdelrazik, has been living in the reception of the US embassy in Khartoum for 10 months after Canadian agents asked the enormously democratic Sudanese government to imprison him for terrorism. Now the government won’t let him come home unless he’s taken off not a Canadian, but a UN “terrorist” list. Cromwellian isn’t the word for it. But the mystery is this: how did so many millions of decent Canadians come to be ruled by such a weird government?

Memo to Fisk: Mr. Arar’s rendition, his and other cases of torture in Damascus, and the arrest and torture of Mr. Abdelrazik all occurred while Jean Chrétien’s Liberals governed Canada.

  1. “another Canadian Muslim told me how he was whipped with steel cables in Damascus as his torturers read out questions from the Canadian embassy”.
    I guess that would should call him … The Cable Guy

  2. “Infandous street corner Cromwell”
    Well if one good thing comes out of this, at least Oliver Cromwell is being recognized by our government as the evil, murderous c**t that he was.

  3. Ah, so he was whipped with steel cables. The report from the inquiry does not mention this “fact”. Perhaps now we shall see evidence of this apparent “torture”, so cruelly suffered in his native country.

  4. “The irony is , Fisk is a supporter of the very countries that tortured these Canadians,”
    Hi stephen, did you write that because you are a liar, or because you are ignorant?
