Canada Pays Millions to Ex-Gitmo Terrorist Who Killed US Soldier

The Canadians have proven once again that socialism isn’t some far-flung European phenomenon…it’s right in our backyard.

This week we awoke to news that the Canadian government awarded Omar Khadr 8 million Canadian bucks in a settlement in which he was seeking 16 million.

What was his grievance?

He was reportedly tortured in Guantanamo Bay as a terrorist prisoner.

This after being captured for participating in a terrorist incursion that left one U.S. soldier dead and another blind.

Meanwhile, two little kids were left without a dad and this scumbag becomes fabulously rich.

How’s that for Canadian justice?

One hopes beyond hope the Trump administration finds an interesting way to counter-punch this punch in the gut from an American ‘ally’.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave Omar Khadr a big payout, but the terrorist’s real victims may never see any of that money.

Canada agreed to pay the former Guantanamo prisoner a reported $8 million in a lawsuit alleging civil rights violations. The settlement included an apology.

The Canadian-born Khadr was 15 in 2002 when he tossed a grenade in a firefight that killed U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speer, a special forces medic.

Tabitha Speer, the soldier’s widow, and Layne Morris, who was blinded in the 2002 firefight, won a $134 million wrongful-death default judgment against Khadr two years ago in Utah.

Lawyers for the widow and Morris requested an order freezing Khadr’s assets, but last week a Canadian judge threw out the request, calling it “extraordinary.”

Conservative Member of the Canadian Parliament and official opposition critic for foreign affairs Peter Kent wrote in The Wall Street Journal Monday that the timing of the payout undermines Tabitha Speer’s legal options.

He added that Trudeau’s actions “are an affront to the memory of Christopher Speer, to Tabitha Speer and her children, to Layne Morris, to our U.S. allies and to all men and women in uniform.”
