ginny_t: Give me rampant intellectualism as a coping mechanism. (rampant intellectualism)
This story is a little heartbreaking. Khadr was captured as a child soldier and treated like anything but. Reading the story, all I can think of is that bullshit narrative, "Just give them what they want, and they'll let you go." In fact, they kept him precisely because he was giving them what they want. :(

On the other hand, change the characters in this story, and you've got an exciting adventure tale of a successful military operation to rescue a bunch of comrades right out from under the nose of their incompetent and corrupt jailers--a story that would be a best seller.

Our world is deeply fucked up.
