The Canadian government just paid terrorist Omar Khadr $10.5 million dollars in a settlement.
In 2002, Khadr, who was born in Canada but taken to Afghanistan by his father who was affiliated with Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations, killed an American soldier and blinded another. Khadr was then brought to Guantanamo Bay, where he served ten years for his crimes.
Khadr was removed from Guantanamo by President Obama and sent back to Canada, where he was almost immediately released. He then turned around and decided to sue the Canadian government for mistreatment while at Gitmo.
Just this week the Canadian government has agreed to a $10.5 million dollar settlement and has apologized to Khadr. Canada is now apologizing to and funding terrorists. Khadr pleaded guilty to his crimes but has now come out saying “just kidding,” that he only pleaded guilty so he could be transferred back to Canada sooner.
Many people, and some courts, are saying Khadr, who was 15 at the time of murdering and maiming US soldiers, was simply a “child of war” and that he shouldn’t have been punished. At age 15 you very well know what’s going on when you throw a grenade at people. He wasn’t forced to throw it against his will. He threw it for the purposes of killing Americans. Guantanamo was his punishment. Now, because he got his feelings hurt while serving time, the Canadians are giving him $10.5 million dollars. Imagine what a terrorist can do with that kind of money.
Canadians should be embarrassed of the actions of their government.
