A Special Forces soldier who was blinded in a terrorist attack by an Guantanamo detainee who was awarded millions by the Canadian government believes that Justin Trudeau is guilty of treason.
Layne Morris was the soldier who was injured, along with another soldier who was killed by 15-year-old Omar Khadr when he threw a grenade in a firefight with US Marines in Afghanistan in 2002.
Now Khadr, who is 30, has since been released to the Canadian government, and recently has won $8 million ($10.5 million CAD) from the Canadian government after winning his unlawful imprisonment suit for the ‘abuse’ he received while in prison.
‘Like a punch in the face. We didn’t understand the deal but we didn’t think that the government would do a behind-the-scenes move like that. I don’t see this as anything but treason. It’s something a traitor would do. As far as I am concerned, Prime Minister Trudeau should be charged.’
Layne Morris, a 55-year-old special forces sergeant, claimed to feel as if the Canadian government made a ‘dirty deal’ with the cash settlement to avoid exposure to the American judicial system.
His wife, Leisl said that even Khadr’s transfer from Guantanamo to Canada in September 2012 was ‘just as secretive.’
‘President Obama moved him in the middle of the night back to Canada and nobody even knew. He sure gets special treatment.’
The Special Forces soldier said he can’t fathom why the Canadian Government would even consider dishing out taxpayer money to ‘the enemy’ – even if they were tormented as a minor in Guantanamo Bay.
‘You don’t ever do anything to aid and abet the enemy. We were fighting the terrorists. They were the bad guys. Something is really off here.’
He even admonished that the recompense could end up back in the hands of the very terrorists that they are fighting, and reminded everyone that Khadr’s father was a chief fundraiser for Osama Bin Laden.
Morris went on to say:
‘As a general rule… you keep money out of the hands of people who build bombs or would throw hand grenades at our soldiers.’
Khadr’s military trial drew criticism because he was captured at age 15 and seriously wounded during a four-hour battle at an Afghanistan al-Qaida compound in 2002. Khadr’s lawyers and human rights groups contended he was groomed to be ‘child soldier’ and should have been sent home for rehabilitation.
They said Speer died in a battlefield killing that did not amount to a war crime.
Khadr was prohibited under the deal from calling witnesses at his sentencing hearing who would support defense claims that he was a ‘child soldier,’ forced into fighting the U.S. by a radical father who was an associate of Osama bin Laden.
‘The fact that the trial of a child soldier, Omar Khadr, has ended with a guilty plea in exchange for his eventual release to Canada does not change the fact that fundamental principles of law and due process were long since abandoned in Omar’s case.’
If Omar Khadr is truly sorry for what he did, he’ll give every cent to Tabitha Speer and her two children.
By the way under international law it is illegal to recruit children in war and combat including making I.E.D’s that killed both Canadians and Americans. This brat was a child recruited to kill as a terrorist!
OH Canada! OH Canada! What an insult to Americans! JUST SICK!
