Maybe the RNC should step in and "Save" him. Ship him to the bible belt, and turn him into a good young repuke.

Hell, I might even respect that more than using torture. But then again...

Enigma4ever:
Try to remember that even though the Lamestream Media is portraying this as an interrogation, it's really more of an interview, with a Canadian CSIS agent (about as threatening as Barney Fife.) REALLY horrendous would be a tape of an actual CIA-conducted session.

Nevertheless, one finds it very hard to believe that Khadr represents "the worst of the worst" as we have been told ALL Gitmo detainees are. What we see here is not a hardened terrorist, but a frightened kid who has been abused and manipulated by every authority figure he's ever had the misfortune to know.
