US Department of Homeland Security Discloses Redacted Versions of Rendition Victim's Case Files

The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has published redacted files concerning Maher Arar, a Candian/Syrian dual national who was mistakenly suspected of terrorist connections.  He was detained in the US and rendered to Syria, where he was tortured.  The US Government contends that he was deported to Syria, rather then rendered.

 

The files can be read here (under Records Concerning the Removal of a Canadian Citizen to Syria).
