Bring Khadr Home. Put Him On Trial

How many times do the courts have to tell our government to make efforts to bring Omar Khadr back to Canada?

Bring him back. Let him have his day in a Canadian court, presumably charged with the murder of the American soldier he allegedly killed with a grenade. Throw in some anti-terror charges if they also apply.

Finish this, already.

    Who are you kidding, as soon as the plane crosses the border he would be a free man….why because of time served in Gitmo, beside the Canadian court doesn’t give a rats patootie what he is charged with in the Amercian system. It’s all about being a little boy being charged, well the little boy has grown up and has learned a thing or two from his other prisoners on how and what to do the next time he has a chance to cause some trouble. If the left want him home so bad put up a 10 million dollar bond for him….I bet they would change their mind when it comes to coughing up the dough.

    Are you kidding?
    Khadr is sitting in detention, it would be time served and your free to go if he was brought back here, think about it a moment then tell me this is not what would happen.
    Leave the born and breed terrorist right where he is, you’d have as much chance of rehabilitation of this guy as you would trying to convince the Pope to become a member of “church” of Scientology, or convincing a sane free thinking individual of Anthropomorphic global warming LOL.

    I have to disagree, guys. Putting him on trial in Canada is the only way to go. Having him sit in Gitmo just gives the terrorist-supporting fifth column in this country more ammunition for their propaganda.

    We would have to wait our turn..he is already in the American ‘system’, and will be going to trial later this year.

    He could drop dead for all care.

    ..same with his terrorist supporting family.Deport them all.

    All the boys at Gitmo have been in the American system for 8 years… and are still awaiting trial. If this was still 2001, I’d say what’s the rush, but at this point, justice delayed (even for suspected terrorists) is justice denied. Clearly, the USA isn’t up to the job of prosecuting unlawful combatants it picks up in foreign lands.

    Not sure if we are up to the job of putting this to a trial either (so the lawyers can clear that up), but we are the only country allied to the US that hasn’t offered to clean up it’s own mess by taking our jihadis fighting in Afghanistan into custody.

    Poll taken in January, 4 Western Provinces and Quebec + Cons and BLOC + 50 yr over crowd are the highest percentage that want Khadr trial in US.

    If that POS is brought back to Canada he should be charged with treason for fighting against Canadians and our allies .

    Rob, I’ve personally got no problem with throwing that charge into the mix.

    The challenge will be making it stick. After all, Canada has signed agreements on the treatment of child soldiers.

    But even if he goes free, it’s still better than keeping this guy at Gitmo, as a martyr for his cause.

    Kadr is not a soldier, of the child variety or otherwise, he is an unlawful combatant, and should be treated according to the Geneva Convention. That is to say he should be stood up against a wall and shot.

    Putting him on trial for what, exactly?

    He left Canada and travelled to a foreign country where he allegedly murdered an American. Where do you see Canadian jurisdiction? I can see the Afghanis trying him because it happened in their country, or the Americans because it was one of their soldiers in a combat zone controlled by them…but why Canada? What’s our interest here? Who claims to want him back except politicians looking to embarrass the Conservatives in any way possible?…

    Khadr is a Canadian citizen. As I understand it (and criminal lawyers amongst my readers are free to correct me), that means the Canadian government has jurisdiction to try Khadr for crimes allegedly committed anywhere in the world.

    His legal team have tried every avenue to avoid going to trial….They have delayed and obfuscated for years…They waited for the Obama admin. to take over,assuming that he would free the terrorists in Gitmo.Obama has pledged to close the detention facility, but he will still prosecute those terrorists (and that includes Khadr).Then his legal team hoped that the Canadian government would be defeated and a Coalition(comprised of the liberals,NDP and Bloc) would wrest power and demand that the U.S. release Khadr(didn’t happen) .Then his legal eagles (or turkeys) launched a campaign in the media,what I call the EDNEY PLAN-you know ,bring Khadr back to Canada and let him undergo counselling,de-programming and all the other mumbo-jumbo etc…There was NO mention of Khadr facing trial but a form of supervised house arrest(Harper called it correctly-another P.R. stunt) .The government didn’t buy that either! Now we have our activist judiciary trying to force the duly elected Government to demand the re-patriation of this terrorist scumbag…
    Khadr is in the right forum to face his crimes,before a military tribunal and in the American Court system..Khadr will eventually get his day in court and the lawyers,despite their best efforts to avoid this scenario,will have to mount ….GASP!!!! a Defense!!!!
    We have NO standing in this case,that is Khadr did nothing against, or in, Canada and we have no CURRENT laws under which to prosecute him…The Americans have him and they can F***ing well keep him…I hope that the Americans make a FEDERAL CASE out of our Toronto-born terrorist and THROW THE BOOK AT HIM!
