Canada puts U.S. on torture watch list: CTV

Omar Khadr’s lawyers say they can’t understand why Canada is not doing more to help their client in light of new evidence that Ottawa has put the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on a watch list for torture.

Khadr — a Canadian citizen who was just 15-years-old when he was captured in Afghanistan more than five years ago and taken to Guantanamo — has claimed that he has been tortured at the prison.

We have joined the likes of Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, China, and Israel on their list.

Video report

The article states that Surprisingly Getmo and Israel are on the list. Why should that be a Surprise. I wonder how many other ‘Torture Lists’ and ‘Human Rights Violations lists’ we, and they, are now listed on, as we’ve joined those we condemn ourselves for their records on Human Rights!

And it seems they wanted to keep this list out of site to public and world view!

But it appears that Ottawa may have had second thoughts about being so explicit. After the documents were released as evidence in a court case relating to Afghan detainees, the government tried to get them back. Sources say that Ottawa apparently wanted to black out sensitive parts that may anger allies.

“Anger Allies?”, as Bush walks around talking Democracy and Freedom at the end of Invasions, Death, Destruction, and Occupations, Enhancing the Hatreds towards the U.S. as he threatens! Condemning others as we do what we accuse them of doing!
