You’re looking at the exit wounds of Omar Khadr, the teenage prisoner who was called “Buckshot Bob” by the soldiers who guarded him.  The notion of buckshot must come from witnessing or imagining the bullets rip through the front of his body from the back.  Yes, he was shot in the back.  The story released by the Pentagon is that Khadr through a grenade that killed a U.S. soldier.

However,  Khadr’s attorney suspects a Pentagon cover-up or manipulation of reality such as in the cases of Jessica Lynch and Tillman.  In February 2008, the Pentagon accidentally released evidence that Khadr was present during an firefight in Afghanistan, but there was no other indications that he had thrown a grenade.

In fact, military officials had originally reported that another of the surviving militants had thrown the grenade just before being killed.

Khadr’s attorney released this video of an interrogation he endured at Guantanamo in 2003 by Canadian Intelligence.

  3. Interesting how we decide it’s a crime for a boy to defend his country against a foreign military invasion and that he should be brutalized and tortured for years.

    And it would be interesting to figure out how many of his friends, relatives, and neighbors decided, because of what happened to him, that they needed to get out there and kill Americans.

    BTW the video link no longer connects.
