Ex-Gitmo terrorist gets HUGE PAY-OFF… American widow gets NOTHING!

By

Shocking what Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau calls justice.

Omar Khadr, who served at Guantanamo Bay as he pleaded guilty to killing a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan received an apology and a multimillion-dollar payment (estimated at 8-10 million US dollars) from the Canadian government. “On behalf of the government of Canada, we wish to apologize to Mr. Khadr for any role Canadian officials may have played in relation to his ordeal abroad and any resulting harm,” said a statement from Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

WHAT?

He admits to KILLING a US soldier and blinding another?

And Canada is OUR ALLY? Watch who you call friends. Important to note, this was not a full governmental decision, this was a decision made by ONE LONE PRIME MINISTER, Justin Trudeau.

And in fairness, this news has created a great divide in Canadians, many who consider Khadr a terrorist.  Seems the honeymoon PM Trudeau has been enjoying might just be coming to an end.

According to the Washington Post:

Opposition Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer called the decision “disgusting” and said he would have avoided a settlement. He accused Trudeau of rushing to give Khadr the money so Speer’s widow would not have her claim for the money heard in court.

Cameron Ahmad, a spokesman for the prime minister, vehemently denied the timing of the settlement had anything to do with the widow’s claim.

Just revealed, the lawyer for the widow of the American soldier killed by Khadr has filed an application so that any money paid by the Canadian government to the former Guantanamo Bay prisoner convicted of killing him will go toward the widow and another U.S. soldier blinded in the attack.

Let justice be served.
