The BBC has obtained the first video of an actual interrogation at Guantanamo Bay. It depicts young Omar Khadr being asked about the events leading up to his capture. For those of you who have never heard of Omar Khadr he is a Canadian Citizen who was captured in Afghanistan in 2002 at the age of fifteen for allegedly throwing a grenade that killed a US soldier. It is six years later and Khadr (now 21) is still @ Guantanamo Bay. This past February the Pentagon accidentally released documents showing that although Khadr was present during the firefight, there was no other evidence that he had thrown the grenade. In fact, military officials had originally reported that another of the surviving militants had thrown the grenade just before being killed.
Mr. Khadr has been tortured, deprived of sleep, put in solitary confinement, and denied medical care.
Now you understand, they hate us for our freedom.
