Documents show CSIS and RCMP’s role in post-9/11 torture of 3 Canadians in Syria

Thousands of pages of secret files obtained by CBC reveal how Canada’s police and intelligence service not only knew three Canadians were being tortured in Syrian jails in a post-Sept. 11 crackdown, but co-operated with Syrian officials in their interrogations.

The files also show a Canadian ambassador helped deliver questions the RCMP and CSIS wanted put to the Canadians imprisoned in Syria, a country with a dismal human rights record.

    Who cares? If they were in the Middle East after 911, tough for them.

    Really not torture really not Canadian.

    Why are we the taxpayers being forced to pay these payments because of the Liberal’s government decision to use syria as a stalking horse to torture these poor muslims.

      Because women get to vote.

    I’m just going to “check my western, colonial, white privilege” and let the syrians run their jails as they see fit.

    If only there were some way to discover what political party was running Canada in 2001! “If”, the sorriest word of mouth or pen (or something like that).

    Wouldn’t you know that the great Canadian journalistic enterprise funded by taxpayers would be lapping this one up. After 15 years they still couldn’t the Mulroney smoking gun so I guess they are moving on…finally.

    Where are the pictures of scars and torn flesh, x-rays of broken bones?

      Didn’t you get the memo?

      Dirty looks, harsh language, poorly prepared meals, and 3 star hotel rooms are now considered by the U.N. and MSM to be torture.
