The young Canadian that has been at Guantanamo since he was 15 had the charges dropped today by the United States military. Omar Khadr has been in the detention centre since he was 15.
Khadr's story may not have a happy ending as of yet though. There is no word of his release from the centre that has been his home for years.
The verdict was handed down in mere minutes after Khadr's arraignment started. He was charged with murder in violation of the law of war, attempted murder in violation of the law of war, conspiracy, providing material support for terrorism and spying.
Because Omar is not an "alien unlawful enemy combatant," the judge army Col. Peter Brownback had no choice but to dismiss the charges.
At 15 Khadr was captured after an Afghanistan fight. He was wounded and had allegedly killed a U.S. soldier with a grenade.
