Vic Toews and torture: A shameful legacy 12.7.2013 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
July 12, 2013 Please support our coverage of democratic movements and become a supporting member of  rabble.ca . On July 8, 2013, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews announced his resignation from Stephen Harper's government, as well as his departure from politics altogether. He mentioned personal reasons for this move. We still don't know if his torture legacy came back to haunt him, or if the recently publicized American spying program PRISM quietly affected his political career. For the Muslim men arrested in the 'war on terror' and for all human rights advocates in Canada, Vic Toews will always be remembered as the person who authorized torture. About a week ago, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews overruled a decision made by the warden of Millhaven Institution, and refused an interview request by the Canadian Press to speak with Omar Khadr. The Secret Trial 5 is a crowd-funded documentary that takes a personal look at Canada's 'war on ...

Senate Set to Confirm New FBI Head Who Ok'd Waterboarding, Defends Mass Spying, Indefinite Detention 10.7.2013 Democracy Now!
At his confirmation hearing to head the FBI, former Bush administration Deputy Attorney General  James Comey refused to criticize the broad, ongoing collection of the phone records of Americans and defended the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens deemed to be enemy combatants. Comey also explained why he signed off on a memo authorizing waterboarding while serving under Attorney General John Ashcroft. We get reaction from former special FBI agent Coleen Rowley, who served with the Bureau from 1981 to 2004. The New York Times just published her op-ed titled, "Questions for the FBI Nominee." In 2002, Time Magazine named her and two other female whistleblowers  as Time's "Person of the Year," for warning about the FBI's failure to help prevent the 9/11 attacks.
