CAIR releases statement on Al-Arian deportation

I'm about to log off when, "You've got mail". So what do I do, I open it. A late breaking, for FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE email from CAIR. If you haven't heard yet, Sami Al-Arian is being deported. The all important email released a statement from CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad,

"We welcome the decision not to retry Professor Al-Arian. We are concerned however that the price paid for his freedom is deportation to another country, an additional burden on a family that has suffered tremendously over the past few years. The negative impact this tragic episode has had on the image of our legal system worldwide warrants a complete re-examination of government policies and procedures in such cases."

Hmmm, a complete re-examination of governement policies and procedures. A RE-examination, to me, means an examination of the policies and procedures have already taken place. Right? By whom, CAIR? Why are they examining our policies and procedures?
