Changing Planes

The Post reports that a Canadian computer consultant, Maher Arar, was tagged by Canadian police as a possible terrorism suspect. He was detained by American police while changing planes in New York in September 2002, questioned for twelve days, and flown to Syria where he was tortured and kept in a coffin-size cell for ten months.

He was innocent of any wrong-doing. A Canadian judge has concluded that "categorically there is no evidence" against him.

What a country.
