Video: Human Rights podcast on the Khadr military commission trial

From the Human Rights First website:

This week’s podcast comments on the military commissions trial of the alleged child soldier, Omar Khadr. The first military commissions trial under the Obama Administration, this is also the first time since World War II that a western country tries a so-called “child soldier.” Another reminder of how flawed and defective this “justice” system is, the trial underscores why we need to close the prison at Guantanamo and try suspected terrorists in federal courts.
