Wilkins Dances Around Arar Issue

27 Jan ’07

Much hay today about the U.S. Ambassador giving us the back of his hand earlier this week for the Government’s efforts to get Maher Arar removed from the U.S. watch list. Wilkins’ effort to portray this is a matter of sovereignty is of course at the least disingenuous and at the most a deliberate distraction that is effectively an admission that on this issue the Emperor has no clothes. And of course, if you believe that the U.S. would not apply intense pressure to any government that was doing the same to one of its citizens, you need to step away from the bong.
