"One Love, One Heart"

Maria Obst's new graphic novel,"One Love One Heart" is set to be published this December. It is about the ordeal of Omar Khadr. Check it out. Not all points in the book we would agree with. For example, the image here says "we want him tried humanely." Presumably that means a Canadian trial? In actual fact Omar doesn't need any more trials. He should never have been arrested, he has broken no laws since it is not illegal to resist an invading army -- irregardless of whether or not he killed the US medic he is accused of, which now seems unlikely -- and also since the laws he is being tried under are violations of International Law. Omar is a child soldier who must be rehabilitated as a young adult into society -- not put on more trials.
