Please let those that sympathize/empathize with this joker sign a petition
in favour of this settlement, then take the total payout, divide it equally
between the the number of people in favour of paying this guy anything
at all, and each person on the petition gets to pay their share and leave
the rest of us out of it.

It had to be a decade ago that I stated that we should have brought him
back from gitmo, landed the plane, tied a noose to the boarding stairs
and thrown him over the side. Oh well....

I already billed him $20 through a Go F-ck Yourself account in his name.

It's quite apparent social justice is the only thing this liberal government is capable of achieving.

RCS said it best........


I actually think that Khadr was a victim of circumstance. His father was a lunatic jihadist, the rest of his family is off the chart anti-west, so what of a kid who gets dragged to another Country under the ideological craziness of these things. Like it or not, Omar Khadr was enlisted into this as a child and his actions were molded by a bunch of crazy people. I don't think he should have been sent to Gitmo, I think an opportunity to undo the damage was missed and now we are worried because he is an adult who might turn back to radical Islam.

Shame on us for not getting this kid out of Gitmo earlier and making a real attempt at deprogramming him. I also don't see him as a terrorist. The US soldier killed was in a war zone, in many of these Muslim Countries children are used as fodder by the ignorant and uneducated. Do we arrest every child that is indoctrinated? Lock them up as terrorists.

Time to re-think things I would say.

I don't see Omar Khadr as any real threat.

Apparently he is being a productive citizen and likely paying taxes, so why would you want to do such hare brained thing as putting a bullet in his head?

A lot cheaper than losing the 20 million dollar lawsuit his lawyer and him filed. A lawsuit that he was pretty much guaranteed to win.

Omar Khadr in his own words | Toronto Star

An old article but good background. Apparently he lives in Edmonton, is going to school and hopes to work in health care. I don't see him as ever being any kind of threat to our country. Though I don't agree with monetary compensation, the Supreme Court of Canada did rule that he was subjected to 'oppressive treatment' by Canadian authorities. It is in light of that judgement that the Liberals now have no choice but to pony up some money. Khadr's lawyer is suing them for 20 million. This is not something the government has control over anymore and, this is the 2nd Liberal government to have dealt with Khadr - so they had their chances. Such being the case, better to pay the 10 mil and offer an apology then to be forced to pay 20 mil. And that is assuming that the offer if put forth is even accepted.

I think 10.5 is a little steep- three million might be a fair and realistic.

Actually zero monetary compensation and a humble apology would be fair and realistic, JLM. Low balling the amount could lead to a furtherance of the law suit - and there is no doubt Khadr would win.

Why do we owe him anything? He was a citizen of Afghanistan sent to Gitmo by the U.S., we did nothing to him other than bring him here and let him out of prison. He owes us a debt of gratitude.

Almost all of that public money is going to the lawyers.

It's a lawyer-driven scam.

Yeah I know he's also a Canadian citizen that's why he's here, but his family moved him to Afghanistan when he was 5, he wasn't a tourist there.
