Beautiful

So if you been following the Maher Arar case from Canada, you know that he was a Canadian citizen that was making a return trip from Tunisia, landed in the United States and was mistakenly identified as having connections to Al Queda. Only we didn't know about the mistaken part until after we had put him on a secret CIA flight to Syria and tortured him for an entire year. We. Us. Our country tortured this man. For an entire year. I know, I know, harmless fraternity prank, 9/11, 9/11 terra, terra. Well, as a result of this little VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW, we have now been identified by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) as a country with a questionable human rights record and they WILL NO LONGER SHARE INTELLIGENCE WITH US. Think this makes us safer? Our long time ally, friend to the north is treating us like a third-world, backwater country because we are allowing the lunatic Bush to continue to govern us. When will it end?

So here is my wish. The Democrats at least get control of either the Senate or the House and start proceedings to bring charges against Bushco. Actually, I would like to see the whole bunch of them tried at the Hague for crimes against Humanity. All of them. The damage that they have done to this country will last for generations, and it was all done for money. Absolutely sickening.

Hard to believe our president wants to legalize torture. I never thought our country would come to this.

Me neither. Never in a million years. And the number of House Reps and Senators that are willing to rubber stamp it is just mind blowing.

You're absolutely right when you say that this will damage our country for generations to come. Sickening really is the word for it.
