In October 2010, Canadian Omar Khadr was convicted of using a grenade to kill a U.S. soldier. In May 2012, President Barack Obama and/or members of his administration are fighting for Khadrs freedom.
Thats rightalthough Khadr was found guilty of killing US Army medic Sgt. Christopher Speer and sentenced to 40 years by a military jury, there is a deal in the works to transfer him to Canada where his prison sentence can be cut drastically. And the Obama administration is pushing the deal.
To be clear, they began pushing for it just weeks after Khadr was convicted and imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay. According to a Dept. of Defense press release dated October 31, 2010:
The United States Government (USG) has requested the assistance of the Canadian Government in implementing the plea arrangement the USG has made with Omar Khadr. As part of this plea agreement, Khadr has admitted his guilt for the following crimes: murder in violation of the law of war, attempted murder in violation of the law of war, conspiracy, providing material support for terrorism, and spying. The USG requested that Canada consider a request for transfer made by Khadr under existing treaty arrangements for the transfer of offenders between the two countries.

Willie Horton again.
Somebody should run with this very loudly.
Yet another brother (or son) of nobama, our dear leader?
Four years from now the current residents of Gitmo will be on the other side of the fence while conservative US citizens are on the inside of the razor wire.
May God protect our brave troops from their adversaries, both foreign and (quite apparently) domestic. Parents, wives and children of the US military need our prayers now, more than ever before.
“If I had a son, he would look exactly like Omar Khadr.”
No end to this..
Eric the Red’s old law firm defended these creeps, and when Eric the Red became AG, he stayed on the same side of the courtroom. A coward indeed - toward the treasonous.
Why wouldn’t Obama push for release of this terrorist? Omar Khadr is one of his idols...
The opening sentence says it all, huh ?
“In October 2010, Canadian Omar Khadr was convicted of using a grenade to kill a U.S. soldier. In May 2012, President Barack Obama and/or members of his administration are fighting for Khadrs freedom.”
God help us all.
What is so strange about this? One (m)uslim helping another.
