Khadr saw Arar at al-Qaeda safe houses

   This can't be good. The CBC is reporting that an FBI agent has testified that Omar Khadr, identified Arar by name, but had never seen him in Canada.

Speaking at a hearing in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, on Monday, FBI Special Agent Robert Fuller said a then-teenage Khadr identified Arar from photos Fuller showed him during interrogations.

The interrogations took place at Bagram airbase several months after Khadr, who is accused of killing a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan, was captured in July 2002. The U.S. Department of Defence interviewed Toronto-born Khadr about a dozen times after his capture.

"He identified [Arar] by name," Fuller said.

"He said he had never seen him in Canada."
