Over at Creeping Sharia, this headline screamed at me:
More information on his whereabouts is likely to be released once he arrives on Canadian soil. The Khadr saga began more than a decade ago, in June 2002, on a battlefield in Afghanistan. The 15-year-old was shot and captured by an American Special Forces unit following a lengthy battle where U.S. Delta Force Sgt. Christopher Speer was fatally wounded.
Khadr is the second youngest son of now deceased Egyptian-born Canadian, Ahmed Said Khadr, who was close with Al Qaeda’s elite. The Khadr family’s unpopularity overshadowed much of his case.
In October 2010, Khadr pleaded guilty before a Guantanamo military tribunal to five war crimes, including “murder in the violation of war” for Speer’s death. He received an 8-year-sentence and a diplomatic agreement from Ottawa that after one more year he would be transferred to Canada in return for the plea deal.
A colleague of mine, Liberty Speaks, has provided me with the DoD dossier on Khader. In this dossier, Khader is considered a high risk detainee and recommends he not be released. Also, his father is a senior Al Qaeda member:
Detainee’s father is a senior Al-Qaida financier and reportedly the fourth in command underneath Usama Bin Laden in the Al-Qaida organization. The detainee and his brother were encouraged to travel to Afghanistan and fight against the US in support of Al-Qaida and the Taliban.
I have the dossiers on the 55 other detainees this administration plans to release. Email me if you would like copies until I can get them uploaded: LadyLiberty1885@live.com
Update: The files are now available here.
