Omar Khadr: Former Gitmo prisoner who killed US soldier to get $$$ from Canadian gov’t
In the war between compassion and stupidity, stupidity won hands down.
The Canadian government in all of their wisdom/ignorance will apologize, yes will apologize and give 8 million dollars 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.
No wonder the killer is smile like a shit eating Cheesy Cat. He hit the lottery and didn’t even have to bet.
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.
Khadr was 15 when he was captured by U.S. troops following a firefight at a suspected Al Qaeda compound in Afghanistan that resulted in the death of U.S. Special Forces medic, U.S. Army Sgt. First Class Christopher Speer. Khadr, who was suspected of throwing the grenade that killed Speer, was taken to Guantanamo and ultimately charged with war crimes by a military commission.
The Canadian-born Khadr pleaded guilty in 2010 to charges that included murder and was sentences to eight years plus the time he had already spent in custody. He returned to Canada two years later to serve the remainder of his sentence and was released in May 2015 pending an appeal of his guilty plea, which he said was made under duress.
I am going to be a little conciliatory; due to the circumstance of the kid being 15 years old and being force into becoming a mini-terrorist by his old man, that MAY have been extenuating circumstance he had little control over. BUT, always the BIG BUT; for the PC Canadian government to award this guy 8 million is pure stupidity. ANDDDDDDDDDDDD, what the hell are they apologizing for???
The wonderful Canadian people are known for their over the top politeness and sympathetic characteristics, (thank you – please – excuse me) BUT, isn’t this going to extremes awarding a killer 8 million dollars?
Are there a few Canadian citizens that are down and out that could have used a boost?
Is this decision going to open a garbage can full of worms for other preposterous lawsuits or what?
