Khadr -Canada's Shame
The Unending Torture of Omar Khadr
He was a child of jihad, a teenage soldier in bin Laden's army. Captured on the battlefield when he was only fifteen, he has been held at Guantanamo Bay for the past four years -- subjected to unspeakable abuse sanctioned by the president himself
Because in Canada the State would try him as a young offender...so they have abandoned him to the U.S. Gov't in no rush to bring Khadr to Canada
Its all part of the U.S. Canada security pact. The same pact that saw Canadian Mahar Arar, repatriated by the CIA to Syria to face imprisonment and torture.
The fact remains he is being imprisoned and tortured in violation of International and Canadian laws, with no proof he is a terrorist.
The silence of the Canadian state is shameful.
His is another face that should be made into a poster and placed by the NDP/BQ opposition on their side of the house to face the government.
