One Ring to Rule Them All -- but not at Guantanamo

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) -- Guards have confiscated a "Lord of the Rings" movie screenplay from a former child soldier awaiting trial at Guantanamo, his lawyer and U.S. officials said Thursday.

Navy Lt. Cmdr. William Kuebler, the military-appointed attorney for Canadian Omar Khadr, told reporters he gave the detainee the script to build trust.

In addition to seizing the screenplay, the military said he could no longer play dominos and chess during visits with Khadr, who was 15 when he was captured by the U.S. military in 2002.

Kuebler said the games and the screenplay are essential to his ability to defend his client: "There is an enormous challenge to building a rapport."

Oh, jeez--I read such a sad article about Omar Khadr a year or two ago... I'm so depressed to hear that he's still in Gauntanamo.

Here's that other article, it's well worth a read:
