if mr. arar were snatched today, he probably wouldn't have been sent to syria. no, thanks to the bush administration's determination to blame syria for everything that's gone wrong in iraq, relations have gone downhill and we're not sending people to damascus for torture anymore. these days, arar would have been rendered to a totally different country for torture. or maybe we would have just beat him with a metal cable in-house.
so while the report is interesting and all, it really has nothing to do with us today. [/sarcasm]
