This story is so unbelievable there’s no real way to explain it. As a matter of fact, it took me some ten minutes to find a link to the story — bet it’s not being mentioned on any liberal progressive media outlets.This one is just incomprehensible and will certainly inflame you. And if it doesn’t, well, keep it to yourself.
As reported by CBC.ca, “Alberta PC Leader Jason Kenney and some other conservative politicians are lambasting the federal government over its move to apologize to Omar Khadr and pay him a settlement of $10.5 million [Canadian].Khadr, who lives in Edmonton, is the Canadian-born man who pleaded guilty to killing a U.S. Army medic during a firefight in Afghanistan in 2002. He was 15 at the time. Now 30, Khadr was captured and went on to spend 10 years in the U.S. military prison Guantanamo Bay in Cuba where some described him as a child soldier. But his case has been troubling to many, especially after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that Canadian intelligence officials obtained evidence from Khadr under “oppressive circumstances,” such as sleep deprivation. That was during interrogations at Guantanamo Bay in 2003.
Khadr’s statements were then shared with U.S. officials. His lawyers filed a $20-million wrongful imprisonment lawsuit against Ottawa, arguing the government violated international law by not protecting its own citizen. CBC can now confirm there is a deal between Khadr and the government that will see Khadr receive $10.5 million [Canadian].”
Yes, under the tenure of Barack Hussien Obama, this murderer who willingly took the life of an American Soldier was released. And in what has to be the height of disrespect to the family of the Soldier killed by this little terrorist, he will be receiving millions of dollars, $7 million in U.S. equivalent.So that’s it, this is how we stand up for our troops? The lesson learned here is that keeping a sniveling little jihadist awake for too long results in a lottery-like payday. And who are these “lawyers” who filed a “wrongful imprisonment” lawsuit? Do they not realize this is a war, and this boy committed an adult act taking the life of a lawful combatant, a Soldier in uniform?
This isn’t some law enforcement action. Khadr should have stayed in GITMO until the day he died, just rewards for the life he took. And actually, as a non-uniform, non-state belligerent on the battlefield, he has no rights. Furthermore, when are we, in Western civilization, going to make a declaration that any of our citizens who take up arms with Islamic jihadists surrender their rights as a citizen?
What are Americans supposed to think of this action by the Canadian government? Are we just supposed to say, hey, y’all are some swell guys? And understand something, I would be enraged, appalled, if the United States would release any Islamic jihadist who had killed a Canadian Soldier and awarded them with an apology and millions of dollars. Now, the chances of that happening have been significantly reduced since Obama departed office – we hope.However, what incenses me even more is the response from one of the “coexist” crowd politicians in Canada.
“On Twitter late Monday, Kenney described Khadr as “odious” and “a confessed terrorist who assembled and planted the same kind of IEDs [improvised explosive devices] that killed 97 Canadians.” He followed up with a couple of other tweets suggesting Khadr should still be in prison.
An Alberta government MLA responded directly to Kenney on Twitter, posting her disappointment in his comments. Sherwood Park MLA Annie McKitrick said she rarely responds to Kenney’s posts but felt compelled to this time.

Sherwood Park MLA Annie McKitrick said she rarely responds to Kenney’s posts but felt compelled to this time.“Mr. Kenney never sees the power of redemption, the power of forgiveness, the power of love,” McKitrick said, adding the support shown to Khadr by Edmonton’s King’s University College was inspiring. An English professor from King’s visited Khadr while he was in detention in Guantanamo Bay, and he was later offered a place at the school on his release. McKitrick said there was a lot more to Khadr’s story that Kenney was missing. “He was a young child, he was 15 and under the influence of his father and he served many, many years in a horrible, horrible jail that has been very well documented, the kind of abuse and torture and lack of medical facilities,” she said.
This person is delusional. I’ve been to GITMO and there’s no abuse or torture. I hardly call having mass amounts of food and cable TV channels along with sunshine and soccer fields abusive. And I can attest that the detainees at GITMO receive top-notch medical care, as specialists are flown in to attend to GITMO Islamic jihadist detainees. Doggone, I wish our veterans in America got the same immediate medical attention such as the GITMO killers. And isn’t it typical of the progressive socialists to find pity for someone who had a “bad relationship with their daddy? When I was fifteen and under the influence of my dad, he challenged me to be the first military officer in our family…give me a break with this sob story bovine excrement. Khadr is alive and a U.S. Army Soldier is dead, dead from the grenade thrown by Omar Khadr. End of story.
But ladies and gentlemen, this is just another exhibit in the case against the progressive socialist left ever being in power in America, or elsewhere actually. They would hand all of us over to bloodthirsty Islamic jihadists because they’re “misunderstood”…kinda like the comments of one RADM John Kirby. This naiveté is just sickening, but worse, deadly. Just leave it up to the liberal progressive leftists to make a freaking victim out of someone who killed one of our Soldiers…and $7 million?
Remember, in the words of Susan Rice, Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction, yes, a doggone coward, deserting traitor is a heroic figure to the left. Bradley Manning releases over 700,000 pieces of classified information, resulting in deaths, and because the fella was confused about his gender, and suffering from gender dysphoria, he was released from incarceration. And from what I’ve read, Vanity Fair and other leftist media outlets are planning a barrage of stories covering his “plight” and fight to discover himself. Gimme a break.
Yet still sitting in prison in Ft. Leavenworth, is U.S. Army 1LT Clint Lorance, who stood and ordered his troops to fire on the enemy. There sits a young man who even had to endure his own Army withholding exculpatory evidence that was in his favor. And I understand his appeal was just rejected. Clint will not be released. Clint will not have his sentence commuted. Clint Lorance will not be receiving $7 million and no one from the progressive socialist left is pleading his case, certainly not seeing him as a victim.
Here is just another in the long list evidencing why I stand against progressive socialism. They live in a special kind of Bizarro World where true honor is repulsive while abhorrent behavior is embraced and rewarded. It reminds me of the Apostle Paul’s words to young Timothy in 2 Timothy 4: 3-5 (NIV), “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
There can be no greater departure from sound doctrine and truth than to believe Omar Khadr, a killer of an American Soldier, is deserving of $7 million I believe even Saint Paul would call that FUBAR.
