Congress To Hear From IG's On Gitmo, Rendition

The Inspector General for the Department of Justice will appear before Congress on Wednesday to discuss his office’s recent report, “A Review of the FBI's Involvement in and Observations of Detainee Interrogations in Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and Iraq.”

The hearing will be led by Rep. Bill Delahunt (D-Mass), chairman of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on International Organizations, Human Rights, and Oversight.

On Thursday, the same panel will hear from the Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General regarding the case of Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen who was detained by U.S. authorities while laid over at JFK airport. He was renditioned to Syria where he says he was tortured and locked in a tiny cell for months. At the conclusion of the hearing, DHS will release its report on Arar, who has since been cleared of any connection to terrorism.
