Using a child as a scapegoat for a war casualty is pathetic. Denying him his rights as a Canadian citizen and the government turning its back on him so he could be tortured (while still a child) is abhorrent. Trying to justify support of such a travesty by trying to label the child a “terrorist” is pitiful and weak. So stupid.



I was more or less ok with Khadr until JT paid him . Now I hope something happens and the money goes to the widow . No way we should pay him . Not my fault his dad made him a child soldier

I can agree the payout was outrageous. It is unfortunate that previous governments put the current one in that position.
Not even government is above our laws and Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We all pay for such arrogance.

Did they though? Do we really know everything in this situation?

I think we "all pay" when blind allegiance is paid to a document that didn't contemplate traitorous terrorists fighting against their own country and killing our allies. If a Canadian had gone and fought for the Japanese and killed Americans on Okinawa in WW2, and then been detained by the Americans after being nursed to health, would he have been given $10 million by the government of Canada in 1955? Of course not. Waving the Charter around and using it as a sanctimonious cudgel serves no one in these situation, and just seems to be grist for the leftist guilt-mongering mill.

No, of course not. However, had a 13 year old child been abducted by his Japanese father, taken from the country of his birth and indoctrinated to fight in an active combat zone, and then captured as a child soldier at age 15, he would not have been treated as a war criminal - for more than a decade after the end of the war. Calling him a terrorist? That’s just desperate. Like all extremists though, your view will remain rigid and unwavering – and that’s the truth. Cheers.

:135: Wow. I know that (deliberately?) misrepresenting what other posters state is a popular strategy on these boards. However, I have always strongly and consistently spoken out against the threat of Islamic extremism (and all forms of extremism) and terrorism on multiple threads. This does not mean I have to be so prejudicially biased as to presume an indoctrinated child is a radical extremist just to serve some intemperate ideological agenda, nor so naïve as to suggest that trying to differentiate this child soldier from a war criminal is somehow enabling terrorism. Wow! Definitely enough time spent with this thread.

Trudeau and Butts are now looking for a fall guy to take the attention away from their disgusting reward to a convicted terrorist.

Are those two arseclowns actually thinking this will vilify some government employee and lessen the heat for them?

Shameful.

Rwede, thanks for posting this link.

It takes many pairs of eyes to keep watch on this slippery, conniving, untrustworthy excuse of a PM. I know we "get the government we deserve" so voters perhaps can learn something from the never ending slashes to the throat the Liberals have inflicted on Canada.

WHY was the payout of 10.5 million to be a secret?

1. Tator Tot KNEW he was doing wrong.
2. He KNEW Canadians and USA would be outraged.
3. He KNEW he was sneekily setting precedent.

So, the truth of the matter has been revealed and now he's on a witch hunt to find the person who leaked (informed) us of this travesty.

As one of the posters in the link said, "if that person's identity is revealed he/she will be seen as a hero and will be crowd funded with enthusiasm". I can't help wishing there were more like him/her.

Will the next election never come???

:-X
nothing wrong with being open minded as long as your brains don't fall out.
