Guantanamo's Child: Omar Kdadr

Bl Sep 16 9 am | In brief: Omar Khadr, the Canadian citizen who was captured by American forces in Afghanistan in 2002 and spent a decade imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, tells his own story in his own words, in this documentary portrait from directors Patrick Reed and Michelle Shephard.

Ramblings: An incredible documentary that should be required viewing for anyone who has an opinion on Omar Khadr and our mission in Afghanistan. Why is our Canadian government using our tax money to fight against our citizens? British prisoners in Guantanamo were returned to their home country without incident many years ago. Why is Canada so slow to release this young man and why did the Canadian government and CSIS persecute him and refuse to help him? Many questions. Not many satisfactory answers.
