TORONTO, Sept. 18 - Canadian intelligence officials passed false warnings and bad information to American agents about a Muslim Canadian citizen, after which U.S. authorities secretly whisked him to Syria, where he was tortured, a judicial report found Monday.
The report, released in Ottawa, was the result of a 2 1/2-year inquiry that represented one of the first public investigations into mistakes made as part of the United States' "extraordinary rendition" program, which has secretly spirited suspects to foreign countries for interrogation by often brutal methods.
Oh well, he was just a Muslim so who cares, right? More justifiable "collateral damage" in the war on terror.
Just be glad this could never happen to you because you're not one of "them" and everyone knows "they" are all evil or will become so if push comes to shove...right? That's the feeling I've been getting from many of the threads I've been reading here lately and that's just as dangerous a mindset as those who feel that way accuse Muslims of having.
The issue of racial profiling has been covered, so what about this? What do you think?
