So, Omar Khadr was given $10M for having his human rights tred upon during his time in Guatanao Bay. That's a lot of money. He killed a soldier, blinded another. I want to know why this person was charged in the first place. There was a war going on. He killed someone. People get killed in war. Pardon my ignorance... what's the crime? Did the now dead soldier kill no one? What's the difference here?
Ok, so now we have paid Omar Khadr the money - How did we do that when the house wasn't sitting? Why did the government wait until they were in recess to pay this. Simply because they wouldn't have been able to push this thru the house without bringing so much attention to Canada's violation for Khadr's human rights on an international level!.
I am thinking that we nay have just funded $10M worth of home grown terrorism. Just think! Maybe we are going to be attacked by virtue of our own money funding them. It may very well not be Omar. His father, Ahmed Said Khadr is an important leader. Still likely has ties.
What do you think? Make a comment.
