Maher Arar Smiles!

I'd smile too for 10.5 mil!

But seriously folks, If anyone deserves it he does. Maher is the poster child for George Orwell's 1984, Jack Bauer's 24 and George Dubya's February the 30th*.

I have many engineering friends who travel & live overseas including the middle east. I can't see them ever being accosted the way Mr. Arar was.

I'm the rare breed of Canadian who loves the US of A and the "American Dream" but this one stretches credulity, especially the reaction of their security agencies in not revoking Maher's blackball listing.



*This morning my administration released the budget numbers for fiscal 2006. These budget numbers are not just estimates, these are the actual results for the fiscal year that ended February the 30th.
-- Dubya releases budget numbers for a fiscal year that apparently ended on a fictional date, Washington, D.C., Oct. 11, 2006
