Blinded vet blasts Canada's $10m payout to Gitmo thug
Ten million dollars is apparently nothing to a free spending socialist like Justin Trudeau, but it's pretty clear his sneaky little payoff to a Guantanamo-jailed terrorist, Omar Khadr, isn't going over well with the U.S. veteran he blinded.
According to the Daily Caller:
The wounded warrior who was blinded by Omar Khadr’s grenade attack that killed Sgt. Chris Speer says Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau should be charged with treason.
In an interview with the Toronto Sun on Saturday, Layne Morris says Trudeau’s decision to reward the former al-Qaida terrorist with a formal apology and $10.5 million cash settlement feels “like a punch in the face.”
“I don’t see this as anything but treason,” said Morris. “It’s something a traitor would do. As far as I am concerned, Prime Minister Trudeau should be charged.”
Morris is also angry that Trudeau delivered the “compensation” money to Khadr in secret so that the settlement would be unknown to any U.S. court.
Paying anything to a sworn terrorist who killed our men and who will use his taxpayer winnings to kill us again, is a sign of pure insanity in the West. Was there a war on, or was there a legal dispute about terrorists' rights to take down the Twin Towers in 2001? Why are any of these people getting money? The sneakiness of the maneuver defies the imagination showing that people of Trudeau's ilk care so much about terrorists' feelings they are willing to pay billions from other people's money to succor them even as veterans go neglected. Yet they are just canny enough to know that the public won't stomach it - the public they have such contempt for - and do it in secret.
It goes to show how far gone the left is when it comes to matters of war and peace. To them, there is no such thing as war, there are only lawsuits to be litigated. This explains why these people can never be trusted with the powers that go with war. They will just find a way to pay off the enemy.
It's time to fix this problem from the stateside fast.
