The judge at the Guantanamo trial of Canadian Omar Khadr, 15 and seriously wounded at the time of his capture, has ruled
as admissible evidence the confessions Khadr made under threat of being
gang-raped to death. His  lawyer Dennis Edney reported Khadr said of
the hearing, "We're embarrassing ourselves by being here," which seems a
remarkably dignified way of putting it.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
