I find it interesting that in the case of Maher Arar, who was alledgedly falsely arrested as a terrorist and then tortured in Syria, the only blameless party seems to be the thugs in Syria who performed the actual torture. One might argue about how much the USA vs. Canada was to blame, but shouldn’t Syria show up in the blame game somewhere? It does seem to put paid to the claim that if the President Bush gets his way with his re-interpretation of the Geneva Conventions that the USA would become a pariah state because we could just do the same thing as Syria, right?
