Khadr is the son of an Al-Qaeda financier. He was raised in Afghanistan. At age 15 he was captured on the battlefield, charged with throwing a hand grenade that killed one American Special Forces soldier and blinded another. Khadr's defense team recently released video excerpts of his interrogation by Canadian officials at Club Gitmo.
Now, in the video, this little kiddie terrorist is seen whining for his mommy, and begging for Canada to come to his aid. He complains that he's being tortured, and he begs for medical help for wounds that have not healed since his arrest. He doesn't bother to mention that he was near death when he was plucked off the battlefield, and that Americans saved his worthless little life.
Naturally, liberals in Canada's Drive-By Media and Parliament are up in arms. They're blaming Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper for allowing the supposed "mistreatment" of the youthful terrorist to continue at Gitmo. They are complaining that their national reputation as a kind and compassionate country is being ruined.
See -- all it takes is one accusing terrorist to get a country full of liberals to roll over and get on board the compassion train. But they have absolutely no compassion, or even a second thought, for those in the military who are killed by these terrorists while defending their freedom. They wouldn't have the guts to defend themselves.
