Sending an innocent man to be tortured in Syria is an exercise of official discretion ? but hurting the feelings of those who did so by questioning their motives is unconscionable cruelty.

This is , the official position of the squalid regime ruling us as laid out by both the Bush and Obama juntas.

Maher Arar, a Syrian-born Canadian citizen with no criminal history or inclinations whatsoever, was detained while changing planes at JFK airport. He was sent, by way of ?extraordinary rendition,? to Jordan, where intelligence officials delivered him to Syria. There he underwent nearly a year of torture and other abuse until, broken, he signed a bogus terrorism confession.

Rather than being prosecuted, Arar was released to Canada. There he received an official apology from the government, which is continuing an official inquiry.

The Supreme Court recently refused to hear a lawsuit filed by Arar, tacitly endorsing the Bush/Obama view that it?s a crime to hurt the feelings of government officials who conspire to torture the innocent.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
