Sympathy For The Devil
In a less than stunning development RekHA Basu's heart is bleeding for a terrorist who wants to take down the country she chooses to live in and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Pressure Obama to keep his word
Omar Khadr is charged with killing U.S. Army Sgt. Christopher Speer and making roadside bombs to target U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Khadr confessed to interrogators in a session that was described by the F.B.I. agent involved as as "comfortable" and "friendly".
A judge has ruled that this confession can be used as evidence against him.
Also allowed in evidence is a videotape showing Khadr helping a group make roadside explosives, Khadr can be seen helping put together a firing device.
The tape also shows these explosive devices being planted by the roadside.
Because Khadr was 15 in 2002, when these acts occurred, in Basu's worldly eyes that enables him to a get out of jail free card...
Child soldiers are victims and deserve to be rehabilitated
She should know better, 15 around the world ain't the same as 15 in the U.S.A.
According to Sergeant First Class Layne Morris, who was there and lost his right eye -- “That wasn’t a panicky teen-ager we encountered that day, That was a trained al-Qaida who wanted to make his last act on earth the killing of an American.”
Speer, a 28-year-old medic, who left behind a wife and two children, was another victim.
Just days before his murder, Speer had selflessly walked into a minefield to rescue two wounded Afghan children.
He should be happy they aren't giving him the death penalty.
Interestingly, one of Khadr's older brothers Abdurrahman (19 in 2002) was also brought up as a Muslim extremist but, he switched sides and worked with the CIA after 9/11.
