Mr. Khadr assented to knowing that he was attacking civilians, that he wanted to kill U.S. troops, that he planted mines and that he received one-on-one terrorist training from an al-Qaeda operative.Okay... that's step one.

How about... step two... we don't repatriate his jihadi ass back to Canada?
