The only words I have heard were from the mouth's of US officials hearsaying what they apparently said or claimed while under questionable detainment.
And what is he doing with AK's around? Are you serious? They were apparently taken while in Afghanistan, and since everybody and their goat has one over there, it's not all that suprising a couple would be sitting in the background somewhere.
It's no different then having your shotguns and hunting rifles displayed over the fireplace...... and it's pretty comical that you'd try and bring up AK's in a home as something bad, when you live in a nation where everybody has the right to own firearms and many of you have plenty of them.
But somehow that makes him a terrorist?
was he holding them? No.... in a court, they can only assume they could be anybody's. And I'm sure as hell that he wasn't the man of the house at the age of 14, so they're not his, nor would he have any controll over what occured in that home.
I get it..... Americans are allowed to have all of the guns because they made it their right.... but as soon as someone else has one, they got to be terrorists.
But once again, none of that matters, because if there was any remote level of evidence in any of that proving he was the person who threw the grenade, then there'd be a point in debating those photos again.
They don't, they have nothing to do with the charges of murdering the medic, and just being the son of a "Terrorist" doesn't make you guilty of killing the medic with a grenade.
And even if he was willingly a part of the organization and carried out attacks, there is no evidence of any of those attacks that he can be connected to, and besides...... none of it still proves that he threw the grenade.
And I ain't going over this again, because it's pointless, circumstancial crap that is a lame attempt to reflect away from the main fact that he has had his human rights abused by those in the US and shouldn't have been put in there in the first place.
There aren't many pictures of a lot of people really fighting. You aren't always going to have a camera man filming every combat action.
Ah, so what's the point of going on about these photos in the first place?
And so we're just going to have to assume he's guilty or shall we let the soldiers who were there tell us what happened, all the while we never hear his side of things publically?
Oh yeah, that's right, they edited their reports in a 180 degree turn from what they originally reported, which appear as though they were edited to suit exactly what he is going through right now...... reasonable doubt..... case closed, set him free.
Either way, no matter how you look at this situation, there isn't enough evidence one way or another to justify your country's actions on trying to make an example out of him...... and it was a piss poor choice to make an example out of too.... a 14 year old boy.
Frig, if a 14 year old boy in the US walked into a school and started shooting everyone and survived the police's assault to take him out, he'd probably still only get a couple of months in kiddie jail and back out on the streets..... yet because this kid was in a war zone and may or may not have killed a soldier amongst other soldiers shooting at him..... he deserves to be held in that hell hole for 7 years and have everything including the kitchen sink thrown at him?
That's pretty screwed up.
I don't really care at this point. I am happy to see Canada get him back. Enjoy!
I will.... it'll be yet another failed Bush policy, even though it won't be a decent compensation for the suffering he has had to go through.
I bet, if he goes back to Canada he will eventually be set free and they will act as nothing happened. Then Dancing Loon can have her true love home since he is her hero and lovable munchkin.
What do you think will happen to him?
That will depend based on factual evidence, and if there isn't enough, then he will be set free, the government will probably give him a bunch of money in compensation for not getting off their asses sooner to correct the situation, and just like Arar, he'll get BS explinations from US authorities talking about how they'll look into what happened, etc. etc....
Then he'll probably write a book which will lead into a movie and make even more money.
Gotta love Capitalism.
