Guantanamo Interrogation Revealed

Post  Ali@4WardEver on Sun Jul 20, 2008 2:36 pm

The Canadian, accused of killing a US soldier in Afghanistan, is the youngest detainee in the "war on terror". A tearful Omar Khadr, now aged 21, is shown apparently being questioned by Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) agents in 2003 at the US-run prison in Cuba.

The footage covers seven and a half hours of questioning over three days for Khadr, who was aged just 15 when he was captured in Afghanistan in 2002.
The tape, issued by his lawyers following Canadian court orders, was reportedly shot through the flaps of a ventilation shaft. Khadr is shown being asked what he knows about al Qaeda and questioned about his Islamic faith. At times, he weeps uncontrollably and pulls at his hair in despair. He also displays his wounds to his interrogators.

One interrogator responds by telling Khadr he is receiving good medical care and that he needs to cooperate. At one point, an interrogator tries to calm Khadr, who is clearly distraught, saying he needs to get a "bite to eat", adding: "I understand this is stressful."
The 10-minute video shows no beating or physical abuse of the Canadian, who remains behind bars at Guantanamo.

The video's release comes after Canadian media reports that government documents have revealed Khadr was forcibly deprived of sleep by his US captors to soften him up for questioning. He faces trial by a special military tribunal in October but human rights groups have demanded his release, saying his age at the time of capture precludes any war crime proceeding.
