Youngest Gitmo prisoner arrives in courtroom for trial

More armed guards were visible early Monday morning near where two war crimes proceedings were set to begin for two terrorism suspects at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.

But apart from the boost in security, there was little outward sign that the first full Military Commission of the Obama administration was almost under way.

Canadian-born terrorism suspect Omar Khadr, who was captured on the battlefield in Afghanistan when he was 15 years old, arrived in the courtroom early Monday morning, according to Joe DellaVedova of the Office of the Military Commission.

    US Republican Senator John McCain confessed to various war crimes after being beaten and hung up by his arms by his interrogators. He was taped and video recorded confessing to various war crimes. Now under the same logic by the supreme hypocrite John McCain would himself be held criminally liable for his own confessions to the North Vietnamese interrogators. Certainly those tapes still exist, come on News Media, show us those John McCain confessions of his own war crimes!

    I'm a Canadian, I don't consider Omar one. We don't want him back.
