No surprise here.
"In Canadian society, there is long-standing recognition that young people should be treated differently than adults because they have not attained certain decision-making skills and therefore require special protection and guidance," the report concluded.
Khadr was just 15 yrs old when he was kidnapped in Afghanistan, taken to a detention camp there, tortured for 4o days.
Used to mop a floor.
We know he was tortured because his so called "interrogator" and make no mistake that means torturer, was convicted in a torture death.
Human rights groups are incensed about a startling revelation this week that one of Canadian Omar Khadr's chief interrogators was a U.S. soldier involved in the horrific case of an Afghan prisoner who was tortured to death. Sgt. Joshua Claus's name came out in a Guantanamo Bay courtroom on Thursday, a slip by the judge in Khadr's case that fuelled defence assertions he may have been coerced during interrogation sessions after his July 2002 capture in Afghanistan
May have been coerced? Safe to say he was coerced, beaten, hog tied, used as a mop, and god knows what else???
Claus's involvement with Khadr is doubly troubling, said defence lawyer Lt.-Cmdr. William Kuebler, because the Canadian was just 15 years old and severely wounded in the firefight in which a U.S. Special Forces soldier was killed.
Just thinking, maybe Canada should get herself a new anthem, one more reflective of the reality of a country that allows it minors to be kidnapped and abused, it's citizens to be tortured in foreign countries and foreigners to be tasered to death at an airport. To name but a few of the most recent bad behaviors indulged in by Canadians in authority, politicians, law enforcement and others. It is sad really.
Lament for Canada:
Our home and native land,
True patriot love
Maybe once could it command.
Yet, With heavy hearts
We see thee fall,
The true, north, weak and bound.
Abuse and Lies
We feel the police state rise
We should keep our land
Glorious and free.
Oh, Canada ?
What has become of thee?
