SYRIA DID THE TORTURING - NOT THE US OR CANADA



Another"morally hazardous" action is trying to stop Canadian-American cooperation in tracking down suspected terrorists by blaming the torture of a suspected terrorist in Syria not on Syria but on Canada and the US. Would critics have preferred holding the man in Guantanamo Bay?

Let's face it. To protect our civil liberties we, as a society, can afford to free rapists and murderers. We cannot afford to free terrorists - We did so after the first trade center bombing (not only did we not hold Iraq responsible for that bombing but as the NYT revealed yesterday we did not even insist that it turn over the perpetrators) and we got the second trade center bombing - 9/11. The price is too high!
