Convicted terrorist Omar Khadr believes that both he and his late father are misunderstood, according to a media report that claims to have seen a transcript of psychological evaluations of Khadr from 2010.
Maclean's magazine says it has seen a tape transcript of the psychological evaluations conducted by two doctors prior to Khadr's trial - part of tapes Public Safety Minister Vic Toews will use to decide whether to allow the 25-year-old Khadr to return to Canada from the American military prison in Guantanamo, Cuba.
Of his father, Ahmed Khadr - who took his sons to join al-Qaida and live in Osama bin Laden's Afghan compound - the younger Khadr is reported to have said, "I think he was just a normal dad ... He was just trying to raise his children the right way."
When asked what he missed about life in Canada, Khadr is reported to have said he missed being trusted.
"Nobody trusts me and they don't trust me because of something I didn't do or I was made to do," he reportedly said. "I was never given a chance."
