[Ed. – Part of the Left’s failed bu continuing strategy of appeasement and mollification.One can only assume that if he had killed two Americans, he would have been awarded $16 million.]
In 2002, Omar Khadr was 15 years old and was fighting with al- Qaeda in Afghanistan. During his terror vacation, Khadr killed Sgt. Christopher Speer of the U.S. Army.
On Friday, the Canadian government gave Khadr $8 million USD.
You read that right.
Stories this absurd are few and far between. And this one deserves your absolute fury.
Khadr is a terrorist. He knew what he was doing when he fought to defend terrorists like Osama bin Laden. That’s why the U.S. government kept him imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay for 13 years. That Khadr was not released, even though many older inmates were, tells us something. It indicates that the U.S. government believed Khadr had to face justice for what he had done.
Sadly, in 2015, former President Barack Obama decided he wanted to suck up to his prime minister protege, Justin Trudeau. He released Khadr to Canadian custody. And the payment Khadr has now received is foul.
The Canadian government says that the millions they’ve shelled out are necessary to settle Khadr’s lawsuit alleging Canadian collusion in his interrogations at Guantanamo. But that’s a lie. What this is really about is placating leftist freaks who have taken on Khadr’s cause.
