Charges Against Khadr Dropped

All charges have been dropped against Omar Khadr, a (Canadian) prisoner at Gitmo. Does that mean he'll be going free?

Not a chance. Remember, under the Bush administration's neo-fascist internment policy, the government does not actually need to lay charges against someone in order to detain them indefinitely without trial.

This boy was captured when he was 15 years old. He is now 20 - he has spent the last five years at Guantanamo Bay; given the policies of the administration, he has more than likely been tortured during this time. That he may be guilty of a crime is irrelevant - if the government has a case to make, then let them make it. If they have no case, the under law which has existed in English-speaking countries since 1215, they must release him. To deny this is to deny the most basic of all legal rights.

By all means let the little murderer go!

By the way where do you live? It's probably as good a place as any to release him. Don't you agree?
