Lawyers for ... Omar Khadr reacted in shocked disbelief after their call for the Canadian Bar Association to pressure the federal government to help Mr. Khadr drew a standing ovation and a promise of action from CBA president Parker MacCarthy.
I can't say I'm surprised. But, to the CBA with 'all due respect', screw you!
Omar Khadr, 15 years old when captured in Afghanistan and charged with murder, deserves to be tried as an adult and sentenced accordingly.
When Omar Khadr said "Canada doesn't care", he was wrong. I certainly care what happens to him. On conviction, anything less than life in prison will be too little. Also, under no circumstances do I want to see him returned to Canada.
And if Omar Khadr was the "child" the CBA and his defence lawyers say he was, then they should also be calling for his despicable crone of a mother to be charged with child abuse for allowing him to join al Quaeda as a combatant in Afghanistan.
