Canada To Apologize To Muslim Terrorist and Pay Him $8 Million Dollars

A terrorist with Al Qaeda was caught on the battlefield in Afghanistan.  Not in rural Canada but on the battlefield.  His father was a high official with Al Qaeda and he taught his son how to make land mines.  They even lived with Osama bin Laden for a while.  He confessed to killing a medic after his capture, but now Canada is going to apologize to him and pay him $8 million dollars for his pain and suffering.

Omar Khadr tried to pull this on the Harper conservative government but he was ignored.  Now that ultra leftist Trudeau is in charge it’s a whole new ball game.  The basis of the lawsuit is that the Canadian government had no right to inform US intelligence services about Khadr.  This means that since Canada is portraying him as a victim there is little to no chance that Canada will ever reveal another terrorist as long as Trudeau rules Canada.

Omar Khadr, at age 15, in the summer of 2002, learning to build land mines in Afghanistan, in a photo used as an exhibit by a war court prosecutor at the U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. The prosecution asked a jury to sentence Khadr, now 24, to 25 years. The jury instead gave him 40 but a plea agreement limited his sentence to eight years.

The guiltless Canadian making land mines, taught to him by his father.

 

 A Canadian citizen, Khadr, now 30, was captured in Afghanistan in 2002 at age 15 after a firefight with U.S. soldiers. He pleaded guilty to killing a US army medic and became the youngest inmate held at the US military prison in Cuba.

Khadr later recanted and his lawyers said he had been grossly mistreated. The Canadian Supreme Court ruled in 2010 that Canada breached his rights by sending intelligence agents to interrogate him and by sharing the results with the United States.

Khadr spent a decade in Guantanamo before being returned to Canada in 2012 to serve the rest of his sentence. He was released on bail in 2015 and lives in Edmonton, Alberta.

The Canadian government and Khadr’s lawyers reached the compensation deal, said the sources, who asked to remain anonymous given the sensitivity. Canada has reached a series of expensive settlements with citizens imprisoned abroad who alleged Ottawa was complicit in their mistreatment.

Khadr had sued Ottawa for around $15m (Canadian $20) on grounds of violating his human rights. News of the settlement was first reported by the Globe and Mail newspaper.

Khadr was taken to Afghanistan by his father, a senior al Qaeda member, who apprenticed the boy to a group of bomb makers who opened fire when U.S. troops went to their compound. The father was killed in a battle with Pakistani forces in 2003.
