Video from "Just Say No to Torture Week"

In this clip from Berkeley's "Just Say No to Torture" Week, some minutes in, I read a letter from Guantanamo inmate and former "child soldier" Omar Khadr, who ponders the fate that brought him to prison, and test case for the Obama revamped but terribly flawed military commissions. The letter was written prior to the plea deal later worked out with the government, that traded eight years more in prison (seven presumably in Canada) for a false confession of guilt. The November 9 New York Times has an editorial summing up the injustices of the recent penalty phase of Khadr's trial.

You can find more videos from the week's events, including the rest of the presentation showcased in the video above at
