3. the saga

The CBC has a site devoted to the Khadr family: http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/khadr /
(the main page is the report of the interview with family members aired on Wednesday; the interview with Abdulrahman Khadr was aired Thursday)

Yes, this is just a Canadian story ... except it isn't.

It's about Al Qaeda and its people -- the senior Khadr apparently (credibly) was an intimate of bin Laden during the original Afghani insurgence against the Soviets.

It's about Guantanamo, what goes on there and what justification the US has (doesn't have) for holding the people it has there.

It's about genuine intelligence efforts by the CIA and others, to learn about and counteract terrorist networks worldwide, doing the kinds of things that intelligence agencies are *supposed* to do (i.e. not invade small irrelevant foreign countries).

And it's a damned fascinating story!

Anything in the US media?
