Much has been said about the Canadian boy and now man that is Omar Khadar.
An al qeada fighter whose dad was one of the key financiers of Bin Laden and crew. Many claim that at 14 he was a child soldier... His actions led to the death of an American special forces medic to which he plead guilty and now is serving time in Kingston.
The American actions after his capture include medical aid, rehabilitation and mistreatment, abuse and even torture at Bagram and then at GITMO.
We should begin to ask questions.... can a child be held responsible for their actions?

Is 14 a Child?

Can you be punished for your acts in war or is this just for the winners to decide?

And the last and most important question ..... what will become of Omar Khadar?
