This WaPo story summarizes the first day of hearing s in the Omar Khadr military commission hearing. Khadr, a Canadian citizen, was 15 when he allegedly threw a grenade at US Special Forces in a firefight in Afghanistan. The story’s last paragraph mentions that Army LTC Jon Jackson, Khadr’s defense counsel, passed out during today’s hearings and was taken to the base hospital. Anyone know if LTC Jackson is OK?
UPDATE: WaPo reports here that, “[LTC] Jackson responded to a medic’s immediate treatment within 30 seconds, and he was taken by ambulance to a base medical facility. There, doctors determined that he was suffering complications from gallbladder surgery he underwent six weeks ago.” We wish our colleague a speedy recovery.
