As hard as I try, I can't understand this...

I can understand detaining someone because they're on a list of 'people with possible terrorist links'-- a day, maybe even so long as a week if there seems to be SUBSTANTIAL evidence against them.

But... how can our government justify shipping someone off to be tortured by SYRIAN TORTURE EXPERTS for TEN MONTHS?

It's not right. I don't know that there's any way to justify it. Crap, if it was Osama himself, humanitarians wouldn't allow that to happen. How can it be allowed to happen to someone who was just changing planes, and not even stopping here?

Besides, Ashcroft added, the torturers had expressly promised that they would not torture him.

Uh... okay.

I'm wembling on whether or not to allow comments here, because I don't want a buttload of "That's bullshit" replies-- I realize it is. So if you want to add something constructive (from either side of the argument) go ahead. But if you're just going to rant, do it somewhere else. I'm still sick, and I don't want to deal with it.


Additional info

Edit: As mentioned, the article was written by a Mt. Holyoke law professor. How he knows so much is confusing, too. The Additional Info points to some Canadian news sources. But I couldn't find a word on
