Torture of Afghan Detainees: Déjà vu all over again

Watch the videos here and here as reported by CBC.

First it was US where “enhance interogation” techniques (torture) against war detainees was the controversary. It looks that Harper took a chapter out of George W. Bush’s "torture book" and similar tecniques were used against Afghan detainees through Afghan authorities.

“Amir Attaran University of Ottawa law professor Amir Attaran says Canadian officials intentionally handed over Afghan detainees to be tortured in order to gather intelligence.” CBC.

Where is all this going? Is appointing retired Supreme Court justice Frank Iacobucci, to review documents for release, going to delay matters as the cat is already out of the bag.
