Finished "Dark Days"

I finished reading the book Dark Days: the Story of Four Canadians Tortured in the Name of Fighting Terror last night.

I must say that the RCMP and CSIS come out of it looking like knuckle-dragging imbeciles. Perhaps that's unfair. Perhaps there's awesome, mind-blowing stuff that these guys have that will show that they weren't complete idiots who told foreign governments that four (and there's more) Canadians were terrorist masterminds, based on nothing but racial profiling and a desire to make up for their past blunders.

But, if Maher Arar, Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad El-Maati and Muayyed Nurredin had to pay through torture while they were innocent, then our "super-cops" ought to be able to live with insults from the internet for their seemingly massive incompetence.

I'd like to say more, but I'm swamped.
