In 1996, Jean Chretien...

...got Ahmed Khadr sprung from a Pakistani prison... now Justin Trudeau just made his terrorist son a multi-millionaire...insert alt text here
"The Trudeau government has quietly paid a $10.5-million settlement to Omar Khadr in a move that circumvents legal efforts by two Americans to prevent him from receiving compensation. The office of Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale would not confirm whether the money was paid to Mr. Khadr or say when an official apology and compensation package would be announced."

FROM THE COMMENTS: Why did Justin just roll over?
"Liberal governments of Chretien and Martin had about 4 years to do whatever they thought fair for Khadr when in power. Only after 2006 did the "child soldier" line make an appearance, when Irwin Cottler was Justice Minister under Paul Martin."
"Trudeau has no money to save Canadians from beheading in the Philippines but will give 10.5 million to a convicted terrorist. Only in Liberal Canada."

RELATED: Major irony alert
Khadr was 15 at the time of the criminal acts of which he was convicted. According to accepted Islamic practice, he was by no means a child.
As Canadian as an IED...
"1996 - The Khadrs return to Canada, but patriarch Ahmed Khadr forms his own humanitarian relief group and goes back to Pakistan. The family moves to Jalalabad, under Taliban control, and lives in Osama bin Laden’s compound."

LAST WORD: Those cowardly fucks...
"No naming of Khadr. No mention of the dollar sum. No reference to the apology. No commiserating remarks for Tabitha Speer, the wife of the dead American medic."
And Justin Trudeau, of course, is conveniently out of the country when the Liberals leak the story to CTV.
