Wiki

Jim Taylor is an American citizen and employee of the United States Government. He is notable for his role in the July 27, 2002 Afghan engagement where Christopher Speer was mortally wounded. It is reported that Taylor's account of the engagement will contradict military acocunts that Omar Khadr was the only survivor of the engagement, and that he may have been too badly injured to have wounded Speer.

Military authorities withheld the existence of Taylor from Khadr's defense counsel. When Taylor existence was first released to public, on November 9, 2007, two days after the prosecution informed the defense, Jennifer Daskal, the senior counterterrorism counsel at Human Rights Watch asserted:

Steven Edwards's, writing in the Ottawa Citizen, on September 11, 2008, noted that Guantanamo military commissions had not allowed the names of American GIs, or CIA officers to be made public. Paul Koring, writing in the Globe and Mail, reported that: "Mr. Taylor's role remains shrouded in deliberate and apparently classified mystery."
