This is not a free country

A man's family was threatened with torture to get him to confess to a crime he didn't commit. The alleged crime was using a radio transmitter in a hotel room to converse with terrorists on the 9/11 planes. Well the pilot who had stayed in his hotel room before him later claimed the radio as his but it didn't stop the FBI from threatening to finger his family to Egyptian police (formerly mentors to Saddam's secret police) as terrorists. He confessed, he now been exonerated, and all information about this crime committed by the FBI has been yanked from the internet. Not before bloggers got to it though.
