« Arar #15: I try to get out, and they pull me back in | Main | 61 is a Magic Number »

"Charges against Arar" is a misstatement, of course; he's never been charged with anything.

"But on further reflection I'd just as soon not excerpt an article for which a reporter may be jailed, at least not without the express written consent of major league baseball, a.k.a. Moe and von.)"

Katherine, unless they've moved the border drastically south while I wasn't looking, this site is not under Canadian jurisdiction (said jurisdiction has never impressed me with its freedom of speech/press codes), so, yeah, you've got my express written consent. :)

Just don't plan a trip to Banff anytime soon...

That *is* a joke.

Well, that's easy for you to say; you don't have to have Escape Plan Delta in place for November 2004.

(that is also a joke.)

In case Delta falls through, the minisub will surface at dawn 100 yards offshore of the Wonderland MBTA stop...

Here's a link to a CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp.) story re. Arar's lawsuit, in which Ashcroft is named:


There's a link there to a story re. the search of the journalist's (O'Neill's) home and office. O'Neill was interviewed on CBC Radio today. She didn't indicate whether she thought she'd be charged. The consensus (between her and the interviewer) was that the main point of the search of her home and office was intimidation--10 cops were present, which was thought to be overkill. Her cat assaulted several cops.
