Guantanamo Bay: Khadr and I Hope

guantanamo bay: An affidavit by Khadr filed with the court says the impact of his bail conditions are mainly psychological -- a daily reminder of what he went through, according to CTV. I feel like the indefinite and potentially endless detention that I suffered in Guantanamo Bay is continuing, he wrote. Khadr, who is now 32, will be back in the Court of Queen's Bench in Edmonton Thursday to apply for changes to his bail conditions which were imposed while he appeals war crime convictions by a U.S. military commission. I hope that there will be some end to this process, but there is none in sight. He says in his affidavit that he would like to be able to speak on the phone or over Skype to his sister Zaynab Khadr. Khadr spent years in U.S. detention at Guantanamo Bay after he was caught when he was 15 and accused of tossing a grenade that killed special forces soldier Christopher Speer at a militant compound in Afghanistan in 2002.
