Sometimes you right a wrong, and sometimes you wrong a wrong. US President Obama's administration is clearly wrong in continuing to bar Mahar Arar from entering the US. Some of you may be unaware of his story, but this is a Canadian man who was wrongly accused of being a terrorist while on a visit to the US, barred from returning home to Canada, then shipped from the US off to be tortured for over a year. A Canadian inquiry found that the suspicions against Arar were without merit.
But the US, even the US of Change, is still predominantly run by bureaucrats that have not changed - and who still maintain Arar is a threat to US security.
I guess because it makes us insecure to be caught doing something very wrong - including violating human rights...they are right - he is a threat.
