Khadr Trial: "Opinions" In the Eyes of the Beholder
The defense of Omar Khadr met with a setback when prosecutors removed the
only potential juror who thinks Guantanamo should be closed, arguing
he had "preconceived" views. The seven jurors remaining either think it
should stay open, have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, or have lost
friends there; none believe the US uses torture. Also, the trial was suspended
for 30 days after Khadr's sole attorney collapsed in court. More on the makeup of
the jury here.
