Missing info[edit]

This article is missing some very basic elements. When was the interogation? Why is it being released now? How long is it? Who made the video?

Right the article is a description of the video and the POV commentary from Khadr's lawyer, who by the way picked the video. --SVTCobra 16:59, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I have tried to answer the questions and add the opposite opinion to adress your concerns. Anonymous101 (talk) 17:58, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Misleading[edit]

...moved from Comments by --SVTCobra 17:29, 15 July 2008 (UTC)):

There are several misleading parts of this article -- so many that I'd be tempted to re-write the whole thing! Please have a look at this article from the CBC: [1]

The wikinews version either neglects to clarify or ignores these items:

  • Khadr's comments about his eyes and feet are in reference to effects from the firefight in Afghanistan.
  • "As Khadr continues crying, the agent calls for a break. 'Look, I want to take a few minutes. I want you to get yourself together. Relax a bit. Have a bite to eat and we'll start again,' the interrogator says."
  • He's apparently not crying out "kill me" or "help me"... he's saying "Ya ummi," which is Arabic for "My mother."

Please revise this article so that it's not so one-sided and POV! I'm too new at wikinews to take on the task, but I would appreciate it if a more "senior" editor could have a look. --Quadrastreet (talk) 17:23, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

That is from the CBC article: [2]--Quadrastreet (talk) 18:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
OK, added that to the article. Anonymous101 (talk) 18:10, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Good point. I have added this to the article. Anonymous101 (talk) 17:58, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

According to the BBC article he is was saying help me Anonymous101 (talk) 17:58, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
The CBC article says otherwise: [3]--Quadrastreet (talk) 18:01, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Good point - removed that part of the article. Thanks for telling me that. Anonymous101 (talk) 18:07, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

OK -- Thanks for the edits; the article is now much more NPOV.--Quadrastreet (talk) 18:14, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
