meanwhile....younger brother's tribunal still set for next week

The DC circus court just denied the young Khadr's motion to stay the kangaroo tribunal.
ScotUS has more here.

Thanks very much for that reference, Candace.

We can't know but we suspect that the Obama administration would be relieved to have a serious request from Ottawa to repatriate Khadr, and would figure out a way to do that. Omar is still at GTMO because Stephen Harper wants him there, out of what seems to me sheer neocon ideological perversity. The SCC should have a chance to pressure Harper again in coming months, but not soon enough to stop the commission.

What can I say? It is most frustrating.
