The label "child" itself is a misnomer. He is 15. Old enough regardless of indoctrination to know what he was doing.
Exactly. How many 14, 15, 16 year old Canadians fought in WWI or WWII? Where they "child soldiers"?
And as far as I know Al Qaeda is a terrorist/criminal organization and not a military organization... To claim he is a child soldier then would that definition apply to the 14 & 15 year olds who are involved in street gangs?
