Bleeding-Heart Liberal Judges Want Khadr Back — We Don't

And, luckily, neither does the government. They're appealing the Federal Court ruling, that ordered them to come up with an action plan to "remedy" the "violation" of Khadr's "constitutional rights". The government bases its defense on the principle that the courts shouldn't interfere with foreign affairs. But that doesn't address the root of the problem.

Khadr is not a Canadian. He is a jihadi combatant with a Canadian passport. He joined a terrorist organization at his own free will, he was fighting on the enemy side, he killed a soldier of an allied nation and I doubt that he would have spared the life of a Canadian soldier, if he had encountered one.
...We, unlike too many, remember terrorism is bred in the bone of Omar Khadr.

We remember how Jean Chretien used diplomatic leverage as PM to rescue Omar Khadr's father, Egyptian-born Amed Khadr, from the Pakistanis following his 1995 arrest for a deadly bombing in Islamabad.

We remember Ahmed Khadr then went to ground in Afghanistan, and met with al-Qaida leaders, including Osama bin Laden, who reportedly attended his daughter's wedding in 1999, two years before unleashing 9/11.

We remember how Amed Khadr was killed in 2003 during a gun battle with Pakistani military, two years after his then 15-year-old son -- poster boy Omar -- was planting landmines in Afghanistan before being wounded in a gunfight with U.S. soldiers.

And, oh yes, after allegedly tossing the grenade that landed him in Gitmo for killing a U.S. medic, Sgt. Christopher Speer.

When was the last time anyone cried for Speer?...
What we need is a law that would clearly define fighting on the enemy side as treason and strip anyone guilty of it (immigrant or Canadian-born) of his Canadian citizenship. That will rid Canada of all the Khadr khrap for good.
