Good Lord, I never realized how devilishly dishonest those terrorists were. According to one Lorne Gunter:
Seems al Qaeda took a page directly from the old Soviet play book for seized spies: When detained, insist you've been tortured. Then you'll get the world's media and NGOs on your side.
And to think that, all this time, I'd been feeling sorry for this guy. I feel so ... so ... used.
