Where is the accountability?

It was very gracious of Mr. Arar to thank the RCMP chief for the apology, given that this Canadian was sent to Syria and tortured on the strength of false RCMP information. I think there should be some public accountability. I heard today on the radio that some of those involved in smearing Mr. Arar have even been promoted. Does that seem right to you? What is to stop these people from doing it again next week, next month or next year? The apology was a start. I'm sure Mr. Zaccardelli was earnest about it. It simply does not go far enough.

agreed that an apology is not enough. But it is sure better than the response of his american torturors!
