There have been two presidential elections in the USA since Omar Khadr was taken into US military custody as a 15-year-old in Afghanistan in July 2002. Omar Khadr’s trial under the military commission experiment launched by President Bush nearly nine years ago and resuscitated under President Obama is set to start this week. History, Amnesty International suggests, will not judge the USA kindly for its unlawful treatment of Omar Khadr, or his unfair trial before this special military court.
