  • Canada: Trudeau government has already quietly paid $10,500,000 to jihad murderer Omar Khadr

    Never mind the 50,000-strong petition against the Trudeau government calling upon Trudeau not to award the notorious jihadist Omar Khadr $10.5 million of taxpayer money; and never mind the injunction filed by the widow of Chris Speers, whom Khadr murdered, and by Layne Morris, whom Khadr blinded in a grenade attack, to block that money being paid out. The Trudeau government has already “quietly paid” out the $10,500,000 to this jihad murderer, and the check has been already cashed, “according to a source involved in the transaction.” This makes the injunction moot. Canadians had no say in the matter —...
  • Ex-Gitmo Prisoner, Omar Khadr, Receives $8m Payment From Canada

    A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner who pleaded guilty to killing a US soldier in Afghanistan has received a multimillion-dollar payment from Canada’s government after a court ruling said his rights were abused, a Canadian official said Thursday night. The official confirmed that Omar Khadr has been given the money. A different official also familiar with the deal said it is for $10.5 million Canadian dollars (US$8 million). Both insisted on speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss the deal publicly.

    The Canadian government will apologize and give millions to a former Guantanamo Bay prisoner who pleaded guilty to killing a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan when he was 15, an official said Tuesday. An official familiar with the matter told the Associated Press that Omar Khadr will receive $8 million. The deal was negotiated with Khadr’s lawyers and the Canadian government last month.

    The decision to pay Canadian jihadist Omar Kadr $10.5 million of the hard-earned money of Canadian taxpayers is being opposed by two victims of his jihad. "The woman made a widow by al-Qaida terrorist Oma Khadr and a soldier blinded by the grenade Khadr threw are seeking to stop the Trudeau government from paying the former Gitmo detainee $10.5 million in “compensation.” Two years ago, an American judge in Utah awarded $134.2 million in damages to Tabitha Speer (the widow of Sgt. Chris Speer) and Layne Morris in their lawsuit against Khadr. The plaintiffs had little to no expectations of...

    The Trudeau government is poised to offer an apology and a $10-million compensation package to former child soldier Omar Khadr for abuses he suffered while detained in the U.S. military prison for captured and suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 2010 that the actions of federal officials who participated in U.S. interrogations of Mr. Khadr had offended “the most basic Canadian standards about the treatment of detained youth suspects.” The court said the action of the Canadian government had violated the former child soldier’s rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and...

Omar Khadr was imprisoned in Guantanamo, captured in 2002 by American forces in Afghanistan and charged with war crimes. Amanda Lindhout was kidnapped by Somali criminals, and held hostage for 460 days. The three Canadians have little in common, beyond the recognition of their names from the news.

    Keeping Khadr locked up in extremely strict prison conditions will not solve the problem regardless what you believe he is or is not. Arlette Zinck, an English professor at King’s University College in Edmonton, has devised a special educational program to help his rehabilitation. He has reportedly shown progress and we are told he’s been very keen to continue on that path. In my opinion, that would be the best outcome: a Canadian citizen who can reintegrate into society, go to school, and eventually become an active and, hopefully, a contributing Canadian citizen. This outcome is far from guaranteed, but...

    A Canadian judge ruled this week that Omar Khadr poses no public safety threat. Tell that to the children of Sergeant First Class Christopher J. Speer and the surviving American soldiers who valiantly fought Khadr on the battlefield. In 2012, Khadr pleaded guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty and guilty to five charges related to the killing of Speer, a 28-year-old medic with the U.S. Special Forces. This young American hero died in Afghanistan in 2002 during an ambush by al-Qaida operatives. Just days before he gave his life, Speer had fearlessly walked onto a minefield to rescue two wounded Afghan children....

    OTTAWA - Omar Khadr’s legal team will “absolutely” move to appeal his convictions of murder and terrorism within the month, his Canadian lawyer confirmed Saturday. Edmonton-based lawyer Dennis Edney said Khadr, who pleaded guilty in 2010 to charges including murder, spying and terrorism, will soon file an appeal to a U.S. civilian federal court that has already tossed out two Guantanamo military tribunal convictions. Khadr, 26, struck a plea deal in 2010 that led to him being sentenced to eight years in prison for five war crimes, including the murder of U.S. special forces medic Christopher Speer in a firefight...

    Omar Khadr has been sent from Guantanamo to Canada, after returning from the jihad in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Khadr is slated to stay in custody for the time being. It is difficult to think of a more mythologized figure in the post-9/11 war on terror. For the worldwide left, Khadr has become a symbol of all that is supposedly wrong with America’s fight against the al Qaeda terror network. He is now, in many minds, a victim. For one Canadian magazine, Omar Khadr is even a Christ-like figure. But let us briefly review the facts about Omar Khadr. Khadr killed...

    GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba — A military jury on Sunday gave teen terrorist Omar Khadr a 40-year prison sentence for killing an American commando in Afghanistan, but the sentence was merely symbolic — the United States already had agreed to limit Khadr's prison time to eight years, and Canada last week said it would allow Khadr to serve the bulk of his sentence there. That agreement will allow Khadr to be released from prison by age 32, if not earlier under Canadian parole provisions. The Toronto-born Khadr also admitted that, in the days ahead of his capture, he planted...

    US NAVAL BASE AT GUANTANAMO BAY (AFP) – A US military tribunal has sentenced former child soldier Omar Khadr to 40 years in prison, but a plea deal means the Canadian citizen will serve up to eight years behind bars. A seven-member military panel deliberated for nearly nine hours over a two-day period before reaching their decision for Khadr, who pleaded guilty on Monday to throwing a grenade that killed a US sergeant in Afghanistan in 2002, when he was just 15. But the sentence was largely symbolic. The case's military judge, US Army Colonel Patrick Parrish said that under...

    GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) -- A former teenage al-Qaida fighter was sentenced Sunday to eight more years in custody under the terms of a plea agreement unsealed after a military sentencing jury said he should serve 40 years for war crimes. Omar Khadr looked straight ahead as a military judge imposed the eight-year sentence, ending a legal odyssey that began when the Canadian son of a major al-Qaida figure was captured - at age 15 - with severe wounds in Afghanistan in 2002 after a four-hour firefight.

    U.S. NAVAL BASE GUANTANAMO, Cuba — Omar Khadr told the widow of the American soldier he killed that he's "really sorry for the pain I've caused your family," insisting he no longer carried any anger or hate after eight years in prison. In an unexpected twist in his sentencing hearings, Khadr took the stand himself Thursday to apologize to Tabitha Speer, widow of U.S. special forces medic Christopher Speer. Khadr stood in the witness box and addressed Tabitha, seated just metres away in the gallery. "I'm really, really sorry for the pain I've caused your family," said Khadr. "I wish...

    GUANTANAMO BAY-- A Danish psychologist who believes Muslims are raised to be aggressive and that inbreeding has damaged their genes informed a damning expert opinion of the risk Omar Khadr poses to public safety, court heard Wednesday. Under cross-examination by defence lawyers, Dr. Michael Welner said he talked to Nicolai Sennels before coming to the conclusion that the Canadian-born Khadr was “highly dangerous” — an opinion he gave Tuesday on the first day of Khadr’s sentencing hearing. “Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1,400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool.” Sennels, 34, attributed...

    It’s all true. Omar Khadr admits to being a murderer, a terrorist, a spy and an al-Qaida member. Monday, he confessed this to a U.S. war crimes court, also confessing he was motivated to kill Americans and Jews. Khadr murdered U.S. army medic Christopher Speer. Speer’s widow, Tabitha, sat in court Monday weeping, comforted by her sister. Her name almost never appears in the love letters to Khadr published in Canada as “news reports.” Khadr tried to kill Sgt. Layne Morris, too. He was blinded in one eye. Morris was also in court. I bet you haven’t heard his name...
