A Question Re Guantanamo

A question prompted by Dahlia Lithwick’s trenchant review of Clive Stafford Smith’s new book Eight O’Clock Ferry to the Windward Side: Seeking Justice in Guantánamo Bay, from the New York Times Sunday Book Review: how many detainees in the dark network of US terror/torture prisons were younger than 18 when they were brought in?

[UPDATE: A friend of mine tipped me off to this 60 Minutes segment, which aired in mid-November, about Guantánamo detainee Omar Khadr, who was 15 when he was captured by US troops in Afghanistan. Thanks, Jon.]
