Federal Courts Issue Rulings on Bush-Era Torture, Racial Profiling Cases

clipped from www.truthout.org

Mr. Arar, a Syrian-born Canadian citizen, was detained at JFK Airport in September
2002 while changing planes on his way home to Canada. The Bush administration
labeled him a member of al-Qaeda and sent him not to Canada, his home and country
of citizenship, but against his will to Syrian intelligence authorities renowned
for torture. He was tortured, interrogated and detained in a tiny underground
cell for nearly a year before the Syrian government released him, stating they
had found no connection to any criminal or terrorist organization or activity.
