KHADR ROUTINELY TRUSSED UP IN CAGE

 ~ Liberal MP Paul Szabo, apologizing in the House of Commons for the RCMP’s treatment of lobbyist and arms dealer Karlheinz Schreiber. (Schreiber’s pants had fallen down while RCMP officers led him, in handcuffs, to a waiting cruiser after his testimony before the Commons Ethics Committee.)

“Deciding whether or not to murder Quadr.

“We could do basically anything to scare the prisoners,” Mr. Corsetti said, adding that detainees were often chained in stress positions in cages and that constant screaming and yelling filled the Bagram prison. He also said beating prisoners was banned but they could be threatened with nightmarish scenarios like clandestine transfer to Israel or Egypt where they would disappear.”

______________________________________ 

You’re 15 years old, in the company of hardened militants who are associates of your father. A foreign army has invaded the country and unleashed a massive bombing campaign. Soldiers come knocking one morning and demand entry. The men around you refuse and a firefight ensues, culminating in the occupying air force bombarding the compound you’re in, killing everyone but you and one other person. What happens next is disputed. As the soldiers enter the bombed-out compound a grenade is thrown and explodes near one of them. He later dies of his wounds. Based on witness reports, the thrower could have been one of three people: you, the man lying beside you, or a U.S. soldier outside the compound wall.

The man beside you is shot by an advancing soldier as he reaches for an AK-47 lying beside him. Cowering in the corner, you, in turn, are shot twice in the back. As shock sets in, you plead with the soldiers to kill you, to finish the job. You are Omar Khadr. Your ordeal has barely begun.

 ‘We could do basically anything to scare the prisoners,’ retired soldier testifies.

Omar Khadr, then a gravely wounded 15-year-old, was routinely trussed up in a cage “in one of the worst places on Earth,” according to a hulking former military interrogator nicknamed Monster who says he felt sorry for the Canadian and brought him books and treats.

Former specialist Damien Corsetti was testifying via video link to a pretrial hearing in the war-crimes trial of Mr. Khadr, now 23, on charges of terrorism and murder in the killing of a U.S. Special Forces soldier during a firefight in eastern Afghanistan in July of 2002.

Deciding whether or not to murder Quadr.

“We could do basically anything to scare the prisoners,” Mr. Corsetti said, adding that detainees were often chained in stress positions in cages and that constant screaming and yelling filled the Bagram prison. He also said beating prisoners was banned but they could be threatened with nightmarish scenarios like clandestine transfer to Israel or Egypt where they would disappear.

Mr. Corsetti was the first defense witness called at the hearing.

Corsetti, upon returning to the real world was genuinely remoresful for many of his actions. He said that he and he and his colleagues had drunk the kool-aid. As a witness he was found to be thoughtful, credible, and honest, as well as genuinely remorseful for some of his actions.

In any case, Mr. Corsetti remains convinced that Mr. Khadr is innocent.

He believes Quadr was simply the last person alive, and became a convenient scapegoat after a superior officer prevented his outright murder. That he was tortured in spite of the US (and Canada) being a signatory to a UN Convention guaranteeing the rehabilitation of ‘child solders’ and preventing punishment (one more dishonorably ignored agreement) is not in dispute.

Cowardly Canada is the only Western nation to have refused to seek repatriation of its nationals, and was complicit in Mr. Khadr’s torture.

Decent people everywhere remain appalled at the vile behavior exhibited by the US. and Canada in its weakness and subservience to its Zionist puppeteers. Shame.

“More than anything, he looked beat up,” Mr. Corsetti said. “He was a 15-year-old kid with three holes in his body, a bunch of shrapnel in his face.” Bagram guards and interrogators dubbed him Buckshot Bob. Mr. Corsetti said he sometimes took pity on the English-speaking teenager, occasionally chatting with him about fast cars.

He was never one of Mr. Khadr’s interrogators.

Mr. Corsetti later faced multiple charges of detainee abuse but was acquitted. He now describes himself as a disabled veteran being treated for post-traumatic-stress disorder.

Defense lawyers are seeking to have Mr. Khadr’s confessions at Bagram and Guantanamo kept out of the trial, claiming interrogators coerced them from a tortured and abused child soldier.

Khadr the Canadian child soldier in Afghanistan

The prosecution contends Mr. Khadr was an unlawful combatant who freely and voluntarily confessed to killing Sergeant Christopher Speer with a grenade and boasted of building roadside bombs, being an al-Qaeda fighter and seeking to kill as many Jews and Americans as possible.

Meanwhile, it emerged that information extracted by Canadian spies who interrogated Mr. Khadr in Guantanamo may be used against him, despite Ottawa’s belated efforts to have it suppressed.

The Obama administration has rejected Ottawa’s request to suppress information that Canadian Security and Intelligence Service agents and Foreign Affairs officials elicited from Mr. Khadr during interrogations in 2003 and 2004.

Nathan Whitling, one of Mr. Khadr’s Canadian lawyers who argued his case before Canada’s Supreme Court, said the “U.S. refusal of Canada’s request confirms its status as an outlaw among the community of nations.”

After the Canadian Supreme Court ruling that successive Canadian governments had failed to safeguard Mr. Khadr’s rights, the Harper government ~ in a formal diplomatic note ~ pleaded with the Obama administration to block use of the information furnished by the Canadian agents to their U.S. counterparts.

In its written response, the U.S. government declined, saying it was up to the military judge to decide what evidence he allowed.

Khadr still at the roadside.

However, it’s not clear from Justice Minister Rob Nicholson’s letter whether he believes the Obama administration’s changes to the Bush-era military tribunals still operating at Guantanamo makes them legal.

In its ruling, the Supreme Court found the conditions of Mr. Khadr’s imprisonment at Guantanamo when he was interrogated by CSIS agents “constituted a clear violation of Canada’s international human rights obligations.’

Exercise time at Guantanamo.
A little overkill with the guards maybe?

Khadr has been held through the latter half of his teenaged years into adulthood, caged and tortured in a US prison in Bagram and then Guantanamo, and now on trial for trumped up charges for defending his homeland and his family. This is outrageous and certainly is the racist, yes, racist, shame of the US. and Canada.

 Now America and Canada can say,

“Look we put this child soldier, who may or may not have killed a [an invading] US soldier while defending his country and his family. We did not kill him as he deserved! We have caught a real threat to our elite group in this young man who we have held for 7 years without trial in horrific conditions.”

OMAR KHADR

At this point we all know that
Evil has completely won the war in Heaven
and here on earth.

Grown men torturing a boy!
I sit and look at that statement with unbelieving eyes.

The neocons responsible for this horror and all the others around our disastrous situation these days, both “Christian” and Zionist (All Satanic) have taken dishonour to a new low.

 Call them Men?
I don’t think so.

These are not men! They are too demonic to be men.

Meanwhile, man has paid the price. He should be freed and returned to his homeland. Personally, I would think that idea repugnant to him after what I have read about his treatment from his craven government.
