JUST THINK OF IT AS OUTSOURCING:

Terror suspect 'will be tortured' if deported (The Local, 22nd February 2007)

A terror suspect [Hassan assad] who says he could be tortured if sent back to Jordan is embarking a last-ditch attempt to stay in Sweden. [...]

Assad is accused by the Swedish security police, S├Ąpo, of working undercover for terrorist organizations and funding terrorist activities. In an interview with The Local, he denied the charges, explaining that he has been providing aid for the welfare of Palestinians.

According to the Red Cross, if Assad goes back to Jordan, his country of citizenship, he is likely to be tortured in police interrogation.


And?

I recall reading a story about the guy involved in the LAX plot from a few years ago who apparently openly told the Canadian authorities that he was a member of a terrorist group in Egypt, but they didn't bat an eyelash because such claims were standard for people trying to get an edge in getting through immigration...
