Overly Redactive Intelligence Services

The censors at the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) have gone overboard. According to this report concerning the interrogation five years ago in a Sudanese jail of Abousfian Abdelrazik – accused of having links to al-Qaeda – "every word on that attached eight-page memo has been blacked out, including page numbers."

Redaction is the process of blacking out or otherwise obscuring confidential or sensitive text in documents prior to releasing them to a third party for e-discovery purposes. In this case, redaction seems to have been used to make a statement.

Redaction serves a useful role in preventing the communication of privileged content to opposing parties. But in this case, CSIS has essentially conveyed the fact that it is above the law as expressed in the Freedom of Information Act: It doesn’t need to provide any information, even page numbers on a memo. Yet by its extreme redactive behavior, CSIS is drawing more attention to the case, and seems to be defying someone to try and get information out of it.

Time will tell what really happened between CSIS and Abousfian Abdelrazik. Until such a time, the silence is deafening. ... David Sengupta
