Unfortunately, some Canadians treat Khadr as a sort of symbol for the oppressed or for human rights. We don't get it. Sure, reasonable people can take issue with Guantanamo Bay and its court system. But Khadr is the wrong symbol! If you're going to pick someone to rally behind, find someone without blood on their hands.
The U.S. court ruling is a reminder to everyone that no matter what you think about Khadr's experience in the legal system, his victims matter more.So true, but there's no way the Khadr-lovers, including his besotted attorney who is suffering from a wicked case of Harper Derangement Syndrome, will concur with that one.
