The release this week of video footage showing a 16 year old detainee at Guantanamo Bay highlights a Bush Administration policy that's at odds with international law: imprisoning youth caught up in armed conflict. Attorneys for Omar Khadr say teenagers shouldn't be detained and prosecuted for war crimes. Yet the Bush Administration maintains its stance, even filing a motion with a federal appeals court today insisting that the U-S military can detain juveniles on the battlefield.

The detention rate rose drastically since last year – to an average of 100 new children arrested per month.
