Guantanamo torture claims at issue as court hears Khadr case

Canadian Omar Khadr heads for a military commission at Guantanamo, where a judge will decide whether to allow his confessions to be used during his summertime war-court trial. Starting on Wednesday, an Army judge will begin to decide whether Khadr's confessions should be thrown out because of his alleged abuse. The war court hearing will be the deepest examination yet of how a captive came to confess in Afghanistan and Guantanamo to Bush administration-era interrogators.
