There's absolutely no mention of Jean Chretien intervening... to get Ahmed Said Khadr's late terrorist ass... freed from a Pakistani prison.
After living unhappily in Canada — which the writer calls "a dirty swamp" — for 10 years, Khadr returned to Pakistan during the mid-1980s. While there, he worked for a Canadian government-backed charity called Human Concern International, says the account.So, objectively... this was actually just another case of state-subsidized terror.
Khadr later formed his own charity, returning to Canada from time to time to collect money for the Afghan jihad against the Soviets.
In 1992 he stepped on a landmine, paralyzing a hand and a foot, and returned to Canada for one year for medical care and to recuperate.
Nice work if you can get it.
FROM THE COMMENTS:
Imagine if you will: teenaged white kids are caught up in some skinhead group. Their parents are neo-nazis as well. Dad and the boys head out to Zimbabwe to fight Mugabe. Dad is killed, and the boyos are wounded and captured.**********
How many Toronto Star editorials would be written to get the kids back to Canada?
