I saw Maher Arar's testimony before Congress. I have never heard anything more damning of the U.S. system. Maher Arar is a Syrian and Canadian citizen who was detained by the United States at an airport in 2002. He was denied access to a lawyer and was then transferred to Syria by U.S. agents where he was subsequently tortured. You can read his story here.
