'You don't care about me,' Khadr sobs in interview tapes (Guantanamo video)
CBC.ca ^ | July 15, 2008

Excerpt -

A teenage Omar Khadr sobs uncontrollably as Canadian spy agents question him at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in a brief video excerpt released via the internet early Tuesday morning.

The 10-minute video posted just after 5 a.m. ET is of poor quality and the voices are often inaudible, as it was never intended to be viewed by the public. But it shows Khadr, 16 at the time, being interviewed by Canadian officials in late February 2003.

The excerpt I read was that the kid threw a grenade in a firefight that killed an American soldier. He’s lucky to be alive.

I caught a small amount of an NPR program this morning which detailed how we torture people at Gitmo — we play the Sesame Street themesong, we play the Barney themesong, and a number of pop songs (some heavy metal, but some sickly sweet). I think the implication was that WE were the bad guys because we play music — THEY are the noble freedom fighters who send suicide bombers into marketplaces where womena and children go shopping.

Did he survive the interrogation? He should be shot for treason.

they found the bodies of the two soldiers kidnapped a year ago. I’m willing to bet that those corpses bore marks of torture. I wish there would be an outcry for the obscene real torture of our soldiers when they fall into the hands of our common enemy.

Sorry, no sympathy here.
He’s a terrorist who killed an American.
If he wants sympathy, it’s in the dictionary between sh!t and syphilis.

You can count on it. The Army doesn't like to talk about such things, but remember what happened to these two brave American soldiers who were captured and butchered by Al Qaeda in 2006:

US pair reported tortured, beheaded

Poor widdle terrorist. We should give him some milk and cookies and send him home.

Better yet, give him some more grenades and set him loose in Toronto. See how they like him in Canada then.

If I hear 1 more bed wetting liberal say that we must grant these animals the rights of the Geneva Convention, I am going to explain what that means.

This animal was found on a battlefield, killing our soldiers but not wearing a uniform. Under the rules, he is a spy and is entitled to execution on the spot.

These people don't like Gitmo, fine. Dig a trench, put a bullet in them, and cover the trench.

Maybe we could ask Mike Spann what he thinks, or he is still unavailable for comment?

I wonder if there is a video that shows the mother of the dead American serviceman sobbing uncontrollably? She will probably weep for the rest of her life. I say Khadr gets to stop crying when her son or daughter comes back to life and she stops crying. That might be awhile . . .

Berkley or the halls of our Supreme court might be better locations.

This is a very poorly written article. There is no background on the prisoner and no facts are provided about how and why he got sent to Gitmo.

Weeping teen? If he's old enough to murder a Marine with a hand grenade, then he's old enough to get thwacked around.

Thanks to the nutjobs on SCOTUS, justice is going to be meted out in the field. Why take a prisoner if he's going to be the darling of the ACLU?

Let me see if I understand this correctly. It's considered torture if you have been made to cry are sleep deprived and are sure the person questioning you doesn't like you.

I don't know of a mother on the planet that has not felt that way with a house full of kids. If we call Khadr tortured then we must also refer to motherhood as torture. (eye roll)

That's already been done.

Obama said he didn't want his daughter punished with a baby.

This should help:

Although only 15 at the time of his capture, Khadr was seen both by U.S. and Canadian intelligence services as a prize captive because he was the son of Ahmed Said Khadr, who had ties to Al Qaeda’s elite. There were three visits by Canadian officials in 2003 and 2004 before a federal court injunction halted any further visits to glean intelligence.

Khadr was captured on July 27, 2002 in Afghanistan following a firefight with U.S. Special Forces. He has been in Guantanamo since October 2002, when he was transferred from the U.S. base in Bagram, Afghanistan.

Now 21, he is scheduled to face a military trial Oct. 8 for five war crimes, including murder for allegedly throwing a grenade that fatally wounded U.S. Sgt. Christopher Speer.

I believe he is accused of throwing a grenade that killed a US medic, in Afghanistan. He and his family are Al Qaeda’ supporters.

You don't care about me.

He kind of hit the nail on the head. ACLU take note: He doesn't need that course in improving your verbal expression.

Throw him a crying towel. This is one Canadian who has no sympathy for this scroat, and no desire to see him returned alive to Our Home and Native Land.

If you can, put him on trial and hang him as an enemy spy. It will be cheaper than warehousing him at Gitmo.

He shouldn’t hang. Waste of a good rope. Have him face a firing squad. Televise it internationally. This is a war, let’s act like it.
