Of all of the disturbing things on this video, the worst is the sense that the CSIS guys were not working for Canadians. At best, you get the sense that they are from some neutral country, powerless to do anything. At worst, they act as if they are Junior G-Men, actively working for Uncle Sam. Never, did I get the sense that they either knew, or cared that they were dealing with a child soldier and a Canadian citizen (at one point one of the interrogators tells Khadr that he can't help him to get back to Canada, but maybe Khadr could help him stay in Cuba. I almost lost my breakfast.) To them, Khadr was just another job, another interview. They may as well have been talking to a piece of meat. Behold your government's agents at work and remember, this all happened when the Liberals were in power, all you "progressives" who think defeating Harper will make a difference.
Update: I would really like to have a liblogger take a sober look at their party's role in this whole fiasco. The video, plus the fact that the Liberal government knew (knew!) that Khadr was being mistreated by the Americans and still did nothing, should be a wake up call. Your party was responsible for Khadr's welfare and calling for his release now that it is in opposition does not get it off the hook. I don't want to hear how Dion is a different kind of cat than Martin or Chretien. That is all bullshit. Dion was a member of both governments at a senior level. Your party doesn't get to sweep this under the carpet, just because it has a "new" leader.
Update 2: Meanwhile, the Blogging Tories remind us what this is really about: revenge against the odious Khadr family.
Update 3: Even Jonathan Kay is calling for Khadr to be sent home. Only Harper and his Junior League Republicans are saying no. Time for those rat bastards to go.
