First Gitmo Interrogation Video Released Shows Sobbing Al-Qaeda Killer

Video Released of Canadians Interviewing Gitmo Killer Omar Khadr

Look for a major meltdown on the Left today over this video of a sobbing Al-Qaeda killer.
How dare they question this Al-Qaeda killer until he cries!
That’s torture!

The media probably won’t talk too much today about how this Al-Qaeda detainee killed a US soldier.

The BBC also has video of Omar Khadr being asked questions by Canadian officials.and sobbing.

Last month a Federal Court of Canada judge ordered Ottawa to hand over video footage of the 2003 interrogation of al-Qaeda suspect Omar Khadr to his defence team.

Today the defence team released the video to the media.
The CBC reported:

A teenage Omar Khadr sobs uncontrollably as Canadian spy agents question him at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in a brief video excerpt released via the internet early Tuesday morning.

The 10-minute video posted just after 5 a.m. ET is of poor quality and the voices are often inaudible, as it was never intended to be viewed by the public. But it shows Khadr, 16 at the time, being interviewed by Canadian officials in late February 2003.

The excerpt is from five formerly classified DVDs consisting of 7.5 hours of questioning, six months after Khadr was captured following a 2002 firefight in Afghanistan.

The tapes, made public under a court order obtained by Khadr’s lawyers, offer a rare glimpse of interrogations of Guantanamo detainees and of Khadr.

His defence lawyers argued that they want him released from Gitmo because he was not read his rights.

Here’s the rest of the story on Al-Qaeda killer Omar Khadr…
Omar Khadr faces five war crimes charges that include murder.
In July 2002, Omar Khadr threw a grenade that blew up an American soldier in Afghanistan.

Khadr was wounded and captured during this same firefight.
After his capture a video was found that shows Khadr toying with detonating cord as other men including Abu Laith al-Libi assemble explosives in the same house that had been destroyed in the firefight. He was also seen planting landmines while smiling and joking with the cameraman. It has been suggested that these were the same landmines later recovered by American forces on a road between Gardez and Khowst- Wiki.

Khadr was injured in the firefight and begged to be killed…
But US medics saved his life.

Instead, of facing death, Khadr may be set free.
Look for the wacky Left to go crazy today over the sobbing Omar Khadr.
