Storyline

After being incarcerated for thirteen years since he was fifteen - most of that time at Guantanamo Bay - and convicted in the United States for the 2002 murder of a US soldier in Afghanistan in 2010, Omar Khadr, now twenty-eight, is released on bail while his murder conviction in the US is under appeal, and will live with his long time lawyer Dennis Edney and his family. As Edney stated when it was announced Khadr would be released, Khadr would eventually take an opportunity to speak to the Canadian public in a comprehensive manner, the interview contained within, conducted a few weeks after his release, that forum. In addition to Khadr's candid responses to the questions by interviewer Michelle Shephard, other aspects which comprise Khadr's infamy are presented through interviews with others. Written by Huggo
