Mukasey on Arar: It Was Safer to Send Him to Syria than Canada

Jul 31, 2020
The Attorney General just managed to say absolutely nothing about why the Justice Dept. won’t appoint a special prosecutor to look into the case of Maher Arar.
Arar is a Canadian who the U.S. judged a foreign terror suspect. They questioned him, found nothing, but, then, instead of sending him back to Canada, flew him to Syria.
Is this is an example of extraordinary rendition where the Justice Dept. sends officials to other countries to be tortured? Mukasey told Bill Delahunt (D-Mass.) that he won’t appoint a special prosecutor “at this time.” Why was Arar sent to Syria? “It was safer than sending him to Canada,” Mukasey said. By that time Delahunt had gone over time, and Mukasey, again, dodged further interrogation.
When Mukasey joined the Justice Dept. last year, the idea was that the career federal prosecutor would investigate cases like Arar’s because they didn’t happen on his watch. But he’s been about as candid as Alberto Gonzales.
