Senior U.S. Official Must Have Made Call On Arar, Expert Says

Posted on Saturday, November 12 at 15:59 by jensonj
Mr. Leverett, who is also a former analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, conceded under cross-examination that his old employer must have been involved at some level if Mr. Arar was flown from the United States to the Middle East on a CIA aircraft. Mr. Leverett quit his White House job two years ago when he split with the U.S. administration on anti-terrorism policy. He now works at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think-tank. The U.S. government will not allow its officials who were actually involved in the Arar deportation to testify at the Arar inquiry, which is a Canadian investigation to determine whether the RCMP or other federal agencies were complicit in his deportation.
