Thee was high expectation after election of Barack Obama that search for the truth would guide America in examining wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2001, a young Canadian born 15 year old boy, Omar Khadr was involved in fighting on the side of the Taliban since his father had brought him to Afghanistan. He was in a battle and someone in the compound where he was threw a grenade that killed an American soldier in the course of fighting. A report at that time written by Lt. Col. W said the person who had thrown the grenade was dead and Omar was the only one left alive. Shortly after, W changed the version to say that Omar was the one who threw the grenade. In 2004, a commando, known only as OC-1 said he had killed the men who threw the grenade.
Omar Khadr is on trial for killing an American soldier. The United States of America initiated a murder trial against a fifteen year old boy who, according to official sources at the time of the incident, did not kill anyone. Now, the Obama administration, to their shame is seeking a plea bargain of five more years in jail, in addition to the eight already served.
Whatever happened to Constitutional law professor, Barack Obama?
