<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">MIAMI (Reuters) - A young Canadian prisoner held at Guantanamo said in legal documents that U.S. interrogators repeatedly threatened to rape him and Canadian government visitors told him they were powerless to do anything.<br><br><br>
The claims were part of an affidavit sworn by Omar Khadr, 21, who is charged in the Guantanamo war court with murdering a U.S. soldier with a grenade during a firefight in Afghanistan when Khadr was 15.<br><br>
Khadr has long claimed he was abused by American interrogators in Bagram, Afghanistan, after his capture in July 2002 and at the Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval base in Cuba, where he was taken a few months later.</td>

That poor boy has been through hell. I don't care who his father is/was. You don't imprison indefinitely a child.

This is WRONG.<br><br>
You can't hold a 15 year old indefinately. He's been there 6 years? 6 years?! Without conviction or due process?!<br><br>
WRONG. It's so very wrong.

Poor guy being held indefinitely. Definitely not democratic. I am not proud at all.<br><br>
All of these 'trials' sound like the Inquisition from the Middles Ages.
