“It’s time for the government to close the door and apologize to him. Instead, they’re going to drag him back through the nightmares of his time in Guantanamo.”
What about the nightmares of the family of the man Khadr killed? Omar Khadr should still be in Guantanamo. He is an enemy of the state, a Muslim soldier in the global jihad. He should have rotted in Gitmo, if not faced a firing squad. No,
instead Obama cut his sentence down from 40 years to 8 years, and then asked the Canadian government to take him. Khadr killed Sergeant First Class (SFC) Christopher James Speer
(September 9, 1973 – August 6, 2002). Speer was a combat medic with a Delta Force. Speer was awarded the Soldier’s Medal for risking his life to save two Afghan children who were trapped in a minefield on July 21, 2002, two weeks before his death.
Khadr killed an American soldier — and Obama freed him. Muhammadan in the White House. And now his lawyers are demanding that the Canadian government apologize to him. The chutzpah is unbelievable.
