GUEST BLOG: NZ part of rendition web?

Did we help rendition an innocent man?
Rayad Mohammed Addullah Ali was thrown out of the country because five years ago he studied with one of the September 11 Terrorists.
Amid a chorus of Talkback Radio hosts claims that there are terrorists all over the fucking country now, I'd like to point out that we've deported this guy based on guilt by association. Please tell me the Government has more than 'he knew some bad guy five years ago'. Isn't this just fucking Muslim Paranoia?
We also know that the United States didn't want us to deport Rayed because they wanted to keep him under survalliance: Questions:
...Well - did we?
His family say they can't find him and don't know where he is, the Saudi Arabian embassy and Yemini embassy deny having recieved him. Does our government have blood on it's hands?
If Rayad is such a terrorist threat, wouldn't the US pounce and take him into custody if we had tipped them off? And why didn't we even interrogate him her? Reports are we just threw him out - did we do so knowing what was going to happen to him?
But why should we care?
Because doing sneaky shit like that ain't the way we do shit in this country. Are we a fair minded people or do we get paranoid about 'outsiders' cause I think fearmongering is a fucked up way to decide immigration policy.It staggers me that it has taken the mainstream media so long as to ask where Rayad Mohammed Addullah Ali is, and that only slowly are people asking if we set him up.
