    Guantánamo leaks lift lid on world's most controversial prison

    Innocent people interrogated for years on slimmest pretexts
    • Children, elderly and mentally ill among those wrongfully held
    • 172 prisoners remain, some with no prospect of trial or release

    Guantánamo leaks lift lid on world's most controversial prison | World news | The Guardian

    Here is the file with the fifteen year old boy that was a kidnap victim

    I'm not shocked that these people would "interrogate" children. People that supported in keeping this prison are sick and I hate that Obama is keeping it open. Yeah, lets keep open a prison were children were interrogated for being terrorist

    You can expect a lot of silence over this. No one wants to admit how god damn wrong they were.

    How bad is Guantanamo? If you tried KSM in a civilian court, they would have to release him because all the evidence is tainted by torture. Fruit of a tainted tree. That is why he will be tried by the military.. No doubt of results with the mililtary, like Graner and England. Sh*t rolls downhill. KSM is a real bag of sh*t, but justice has been terminated. UCMJ because they follow orders.

    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Omar Khadr, aged 15 at the time, is the son of an alleged al-Qaida leader in Canada. He killed a US soldier by throwing a grenade at him during a battle at a suspected al-Qaida base in Afghanistan. Khadr has spent nearly nine years in Cuba as a result.

    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.

    Agreed, but lets hope they say something that will get them in too trouble with the media.


    Oh wait a minute... didn't Bush already do that by claiming water boarding helped save British lives? And we did nothing about it your correct .
