GUANTANAMO BAY U.S. NAVAL BASE, Cuba (Reuters) - The military judge presiding at Omar Khadr's war crimes tribunal dismissed all the charges against the young Canadian on Monday.
The judge said he did not have jurisdiction to try Khadr under a new 2006 law authorizing tribunals at Guantanamo for foreign terrorism suspects. Khadr did not meet the exact definition of those eligible for trial, as written in the law.
