Steal this sweater

We would do well to remember that Omar Khadr is still on trial. He's Canadian, he was 15 at the time of his capture, and though he has been held by American authorities since 2002, he has never been found guilty of ANY crime.

To Khadr and his legal team, I say good luck. To the spineless Canadian politicians and bureaucrats in Foreign Affairs, it's my wish that you never have to experience life in a foreign prison, though it is precisely what you deserve for all of the Brenda Martins, Zahra Kazemis, and William Sampsons that you never helped. Lastly to the very cool knitters at Steal This Sweater, I say thanks for reminding me that as long as the "War on Terror" continues we are not free.
