The way our government has treated Sami al-Arian, a fellow American citizen is an absolute disgrace. No doubt that we will look back at this period in our history with shame just as we do when remembering the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. Not much hope from the cast of characters in the current administration but hoping the next administration will apologize to and pardon Dr. Al Arian.
I had the opportunity to watch the documentary film USA vs. Al-Arian in Washington DC last year and highly recommend it to everyone. It’s the sort of film that exposes unpalatable truths about the injustice regularly perpetrated by the government in this pseudo-war-on-terror on innocent individuals and families that no one wants you to see, which is one reason that the film can’t seem to find a distributor in the US.
