How can this be my country?  
In an op-ed piece today, Bob Herbert interviewed Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen who was imprisoned by US officials without arrest, trial, or sentencing, and sent to Syria to be tortured. While there, he heard the screams of other prisoners being tortured, and women begging guards for milk for their babies. He could hear the babies crying.

In what world is this okay? In what goddamn world can people sleep at night knowing this is going on???

Please, please, please write to the President, your senators, your representatives and tell them this must stop. This has to stop. Forward this information to everyone you know. We have to do everything in our power to end this. I don't care if you don't think it'll help, do it anyway. Because any chance is better than nothing.
