Perhaps you are stuck in your own little fantasy yourself, because I don't remember hearing him admit he tossed the grenade and ran.
The official reports I have read, stated that #1 - He was shot twice in the back as he curled up in the corner of the compound like most kids in the middle of bullet fire would..... #2 - US troops reported and recorded that they shot and killed another man after the grenade was tossed, prior to them shooting and capturing Omar, then they re-wrote the reports stating he was the only one left alive after the grenade was tossed, in order to suit their case. #3 - Omar and the US troops were on forign soil in the middle of a military conflict and thus, should have been treated as a POW (Prisoner of War) #4 - He was a minor during this incident and thus, should be treated as a child soldier.
By all means, show me your wonderful pile of facts stating the above that he admitted to tossing the grenade, then running away and being shot in the back.... twice.
Regardless, based already on the information provided thus far, and the reports I have been continually been submitting here in the forums and elsewhere, there is more then enough reasonble doubt in this case to throw it out the window and set him free..... but then again, he is in the middle of a corrupt-illegal court system, and our own government refuses to listen to the Canadian public.... which put them in office and responsible for them getting their fancy paycheques in the first place.... and are not doing their job.
Omar has not been tortured for 6 years. His lawyers could only come up with him crying the blues when he found out that CSIS was not going to save his terrorist behind like Chretien did with his dear old daddy,and the ten minutes or so that was broadcast was the worst from 7 hours of videotape!
That was the only available video footage that was released, thanks to our own courts forcing CSIS to release the footage. I am more then sure more was done to him, based on other accounts of prisoners from Git. who were later released after they figured out they wern't a threat or innocent of their crimes.....
... What about Arar? I suppose he wasn't tortured either..... get a fk'n clue will you.
He had his sleep interrupted for a week before his interrogation,something like living with a new-born. Unpleasant,but not torture.
Wrong, it has been labeled a form of torture..... the CSIS agents knew and were told this was happening, and they did nothing.... that's the first clear step in violation, and that's why the video was such a big deal.... not because he was crying.
If you don't know anything about what's going on, then don't open your ignorant mouth.
The case you cite about Harper's attitude towards the death penalty,I am very familiar with. Ron Smith,scumbag,marched two young natives who had picked him up hitch-hiking ,and shot them in the head. He did this so he could feel how it is to kill someone. They should have hung him years ago when he wanted to be put to death. You want to bring this scum back to Canada and let him go out on parole,I don't. Join the real world,some people do not deserve to live in it.
Indeed, some people don't deserve to live in it..... after it's been proven they shouldn't. You're examples are piss poor, slack in accurate information, and is filled with racial hatred and ignorance..... do a better job next time.
