The sad reality of the Iacobucci report

Last week, former Supreme Court justice, Frank Iacobucci, completed his report on his "internal" investigation into the torture of three Canadians in Syrian and Egyptian prisons in the early years of the decade. As with the earlier O'Connor report concerning Maher Arar, the Iacobucci report focused on the actions of Canadian officials prior to and during their detentions.
