I'm wondering what people think of the story of William Sampson from Canada? He's the 44-year-old biochemist who was recently released by the Saudis after being held for 31 months under charges of murder. Not only was he (and others) tortured and forced into making a televised confession, but it's also been revealed that Canadian government officials knew he was tortured but continued to gloss over the issue.

I'm thinking it is ok for Canadians to get tortured, because they are anti-American...and especially by Saudi Arabia, because they are our friends.

No, it is just my normal reaction to human-rights violations by "friends" of the American oil companies or the religious Right, or when Americans are not involved.

Ole.
