    Kids can be terrorists. Kids can be brainwashed. We have "gang members" here who are still in elementary school committing acts of violence with and without weapons. Why is it so far-fetched to assume that a "child" of 14 or 15 could be absolutely convinced that anybody out of alignment with their world view must die? This kid was kidnapped, but if he hadn't been capture when he was it is very likely that his kidnapping would have led to indoctrination and further resource for Al Queda or any other jihadist group seeking to nullify us or anybody else they dislike.

    Also, not sure why anybody is surprised by what Wikileaks has produced. I've heard most of this before via the MSM.

    His 2004 assessment stresses the intelligence value of his family connections. "Based on the detainee's folder, the knowledgeability brief and subsequent interrogations by JTF Guantánamo, the detainee is of high intelligence value to the United States.

    "Detainee continues to provide valuable information on his father's associates, and on non-governmental organisations that he worked with in supporting al-Qaida, as well as other major facilitators of interest to the US."
    Khadr pleaded guilty to war crimes at a military tribunal in October 2010, becoming the first minor to face such a conviction since the second world war. The plea deal is due to see him transferred to Canada later this year, to serve the remainder of an agreed eight-year sentence.
    He said that because someone told him that someone was going to rape him in prison if he didn't say he had done the crime.

    This week, a 16-year-old boy was seen crying for his mother under interrogation in Guantánamo. How did he get there? | World news | The Guardian

    I had to have a 16 year old arrested after he stole $500 in product from my store, then threated a staff member. When the cop tried to restrain him the kid took a shot. The cop took him down and cuffed him. IMMEDIATELY the kid started crying, begging for his mother. Just sayin'.

    Guantanamo is everything America is not supposed to be. Shame on Obama for breaking his promise.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    This prison is no better than a Soviet Gulag. It hope for a swift closing of it.

    Um...... Yeah, but this is a little bit different. This was after Omar had turned sixteen years old he was 15 at the time of his capture..." Plus, the fact this boy might have been tortured in the process makes me a little bit iffy on his supposed confession.



    See the video of the integration first.

    Just so people know, I'm pretty sure Gitmo isn't closing in the next year or so.

    There is no other place to keep prisoners of a war like we are fighting. We most likely aren't going to bring them to US soil to be tried in our courts and it also unlikely that they will be released to kill more people. It's called "a rock" and "a hardplace" and Gitmo is right there in the middle.

    It's a mean world out there and there are lots of evil people, there is also lots of nice and peaceful people out there as well and hopefully more so than the previously mentioned. There is a fine line between them and us, so who's willing to stand between good and evil, it will take some place you won't want to return to. You maybe right or you maybe wrong but one thing for sure you will understand it.

    BTW shame on the human race, we are all to blame.

    Oh please, to say were all to blame is brushing this thing off like its something we shouldn't talk about. We should be talking about it and try to make changes in order to do the right thing as a people Guantanamo bay prison should be closed down.

    Okay, and where do we put those who we are all pretty confident have masterminded or controlled violence against Americans and other world citizens?
