Sen. Leahy Slams Gonzalez Over Torture

Here's a video with U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales being asked about sanctioning kidnapping and torture.

Senator Leahy (D) Vermont, blasted Alberto Gonzalez at todays briefing over the treatment of Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen who was detained and sent to Syria, where he was regularly tortured for almost a year before being released uncharged.

Gonzales has until next week to come up with answers; otherwise there should be another hearing.
