Today in Guantanamo

This is the 4th sketch I've done since arriving in Guantanamo. I'm covering the hearing of Canadian Omar Khadr, who has been detained here since he was 16, and is now 23. Today an agent testified, and video was displayed showing young Khadr with older known al Quaeda individuals making bombs. He reluctantly came to court, his damaged eye apparently bothering him, so you can see him here with head in hands. The agent holds a disk of the movie in his hands while testifying. Tomorrow we're back in court at 0800. Look out for more postings.
