As Edney stated when it was announced Khadr would be released, Khadr would eventually take an opportunity to speak to the Canadian public in a comprehensive manner, the interview contained within, conducted a few weeks after his release, that forum. In addition to Khadr's candid responses to the questions by interviewer Michelle Shephard, other aspects which comprise Khadr's infamy are presented through interviews with others.
