Aunt Jemima's Pancakes of Torture and Syrup of Lies

"This month, as Dr. Rice was speaking to the Europeans, a man called Khaled al-Masri was speaking by satellite link-up to a news conference in Washington.

"Mr. al-Masri is a German citizen of Lebanese origin. On holiday in Macedonia, he was kidnapped and handed over to Americans. He was taken to a prison in Afghanistan where he was held incommunicado for five months and tortured. He was also sodomized by his jailers.

"Dr. Rice had said only that, 'Any policy will sometimes result in errors, and when it happens we will do everything to rectify it.' That's odd, because Mr. al-Masri was denied entry to the US last weekend when he arrived in Atlanta."
