Summary
Canadian human rights lawyer and activist Webb begins with the cautionary tale of Maher Arar, a Canadian snatched by US authorities and whisked off to the Middle East to be tortured for a year before being released without charge, or even apology. From there, she reveals the multitude of sleight-of-hand measures governments have taken to limit the freedom of people who were being terrified by government warnings of terrorism.
