...But Not Going to Fight Now

The government will not seek Omar Khadr's repatriation from Guantanamo Bay, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office reaffirmed yesterday after several DVDs showing Canadian officials interrogating the then-16-year-old were released. The CBC quoted the prime minister's chief of communications, Kory Teneycke, as saying: "Mr. Khadr faces serious charges. There is a judicial process underway to determine Mr. Khadr's fate. This should continue." The tapes show Mr. Khadr crying and pleading for help. The prime minister made the same comment last week despite revelations the government knew Mr. Khadr was tortured after he was captured by American forces.
