Taking a stab at justice

The British High Court has ruled that Lofti Raissi, falsely accused of training some of the 11 September terrorists to fly, has been "completely exonerated" and that he may seek compensation from the British government. Mr. Raissi, a British resident of Algerian origin, was a pilot until he was detained for five months and is still unable to obtain employment. The ability to seek compensation is a first step but he will not have been afforded justice until any blacklist against him is lifted and he may work in his chosen trade again. I do suspect that Mr. Raissi's freedom and ability to work is one of those things that the right wingers would gladly trade for their own security.
