The paragons of virtue lied? Impossible.

A photograph and a U.S. soldier’s testimony prove Canadian Omar Khadr could not have killed a U.S. soldier in a 2002 firefight in Afghanistan, the terror suspect’s military-appointed lawyer said on Friday.
Khadr, who attended the pretrial hearing Friday at the U.S. detention centre in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is accused of killing a U.S. army medic with a hand grenade during a four-hour firefight at a suspected al-Qaeda compound.
Lt.-Cmdr. Bill Kuebler told the hearing that the photograph shows Khadr buried under the rubble of a collapsed building at the time the grenade that killed Sgt. Christopher Speer was thrown, proving he could not have thrown it.
