When Zaynab Khadr slipped quietly into Toronto on February 17, officials seized her pictures, papers, laptop and cellphone. What they couldnt seize was whatever the 25-year-old daughter of the Prime Minister Jean Chretien-rescued Ahmed Said Khadr carries about in her head.
The late Ahmed Said Khadr, officially identified as Canadas highest-ranking member of Al Qaeda, was set free from a Pakistani prison, when Prime Minister Jean Chretien intervened on his behalf.
During a 1996 state visit to Pakistan, Chretien "aggressively sought guarantees" from the countrys then Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto that Khadr would receive due process and fair treatment.
When mainstream Canadians complained about Zaynabs 2004 comments to CBC about the September 11 attacks, indicating that Americans deserve to feel a pain similar to what they inflected on others, Prime Minister Paul Martin reminded them that as a Canadian citizen she had a right to her opinions.
While the Khadr familys association to Al Qaeda as terrorist-trained members is legendary, Zaynab has been the familys most outspoken member. Osama bin Laden was a guest at her wedding.
The newly-returned Canadian citizen will rejoin her family in Scarborough, where she feels she will have more power to lobby for the rights of her two brothers18-year-old Omar, who is Canadas only known detainee at Cubas Guantanamo Bay, and her brother, Abdullah, whereabouts unknown since October.
As she chooses to dress in the traditional chador, westerners can see only Khadrs eyes and hands. Among her latest claims, is a watered down version of bin Ladens presence at her wedding. On the happy occasion, the terrorist of the future was not the prominent figure he is now, pre-9/11, she reminds us.
How he came to join the wedding party was no fault of the bride. . . . .

"When will the Canadian government wake up and stop coddling, supporting and acting as a haven for terrorists?"
When it's too late to do something about it!
Ashamed and outraged by my government, yet again.
More political correctness:
You're 100% right.
I am beyond disgust at former Prime Minister Chretien. His performance, recently televised, when he was summoned on HIS government's corruptions, exposed him as a charlatan. Yet, a number of Canadians guffawed at his golf ball episode,at the Gomery hearings.
Also worth mentioning is one Mahar Arar. The authorities in Canada washed their hands of him,when contacted by American authorities. He landed in New York and was shipped back to his native Syria. 10 months "torture" followed for him. Locked in a closet type cell. The cost of the enquiry so far, is $23 million dollars and rising. Yep, much of it lawyers fees. This poor man (sarcasm on) only wants $10 million compensation. After a week back in Canada he was one the best looking dudes in Toronto. Torture and all. LOL
When we get a new government.
