Return Khadr Home

My gosh. The idiocy of America is really spreading to Canada. Can we oust the Conservatives from Ottawa already?

Guantanamo Bay is finally being shut down under Obama’s orders and yet Omar Khadr is still not being brought back to Canada. It is as if the Canadian government does not care at all; it’s obvious enough that there won’t be a place for him in the States.

“As a matter of fact, I reiterated Canada’s position on this,” said Mr. Cannon. “What I have said on numerous occasions is that this individual is allegedly a murderer and [stands] accused of terrorism.”

That’s funny. That’s really funny. One country invades another, and then when the invaded country fights against the invaders, he is labeled a terrorist and a murderer. Twisted law, politics and justice I must say. But that is really what runs around in the world. I must say that Omar Khadr is accused under baseless accusation, not to mention that when he was captured, he was only 15 years of age. How one can be kept in a tortuous detainment center such as Guantanamo Bay for six years, six years of young adulthood? And after all these years the Canadian government acts as an American lap-dog and refuses to even try to bother to get one of their own out of such hardship. This is an obscure embarrassment on the part of the Canadian government.

There are tons of protests in rallies and petitions to free Khadr yet not one has had its voice heard. Okay, let’s say Khadr is a terrorist and murderer. Yet he is Canadian born, so does he not deserve the right to return home? Imagine oneself in the same position, such treatment is unfair and the desire to come home is just too great.

I can’t help but want Khadr returned home and given fair trials in anything he may or may not have done. If such cannot happen, then the only rule left is, there are no rules; and that laws and constitutions are worthless.

    At first I was hopeful, that Obama was gonna bring positive change by shutting down Ginto..
    but don’t you notice that it seems more of a PR move to score points
    ..I mean seriously..it looks like he honestly doesn’t care about the ‘accused’ in there…it’s starting to smell fishy…

    You mean Gitmo* =.-
    It’s not about Obama or anything, it’s about the Canadian government refusing to take it’s own citizen back. Even if he is a criminal, it is only right that he be detained IN Canada.

    “Does he deserve the right to return home?”
    Not if he was convicted of a serious crime on foreign soil in a fair trial with due process. It’s not about his citizenship. It’s about the involvement of Canadian government officials in the serious violations of his rights. It’s about the evidence pertaining to torture and mistreatment. It’s about spending three years in U.S. custody before he was charged. It’s about, oh, read the rest for yourselves:
