The U.S. military has filed murder charges against the only Canadian being held at Guantanamo Bay prison.
Khadr, who was born in Toronto and lived for years in various southern Ontario communities, was arrested in Afghanistan in July 2002.Just how Canadian was Khadr and his family anyway?
The U.S. military alleges that he killed an American medic in a grenade attack, which wounded several other American soldiers.
Like Gamil Gharbi... he was "not one of us."
As Licia Corbella wrote in an excellent article in the Calgary Sun, Gharbi/ Lepine was "Not one of us". He wasn't a hunter, farmer or gun collector, but the product of an abusive, misogynistic father.It really doesn't matter what it says on your passport... you can't be a Canadian AND a Jihadi.
This so obviously affected young Gamil that, at 18 years of age, he legally changed his name, trying to erase the bad juju his father had inflicted on his family.
