Being 16-years-old sucks. But I could not imagine being that young while being interrogated for six years in GuantÃ¡namo Bay. But thanks to Canadian Omar Khadr’s lawyers, I don’t have to imagine it. I can watch it.
His lawyers released this video because they have no legal avenues to free him.Â â€œThe only way to get him released is through a political process,â€ said Nathan Whitling, one of Mr. Khadrâ€™s Canadian lawyers. â€œSo we are pleading in the court of public opinion.â€
So far, no luck. Prime Minister Stephen Harper believes that there is a “judicial process” that should be followed through. “This should continue,” said his spokesperson.
