Take off, hoser

Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr has been transferred to Canada to serve out the remainder of an eight-year prison sentence for having killed an American soldier in a 2002 firefight in Afghanistan:

This is the same Khadr who pled guilty at a military commission trial in 2010 to killing one of those 2,000 troops, Army Sergeant First Class Christopher J. Speer.

Though outrageous, sending Mr. Khadr back to Canada is consistent with the fantasy-inspired worldview on radical Islam so prevalent in the Obama administration. This mindset results in things like U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice blaming the coordinated, well-armed Sept. 11 attacks on our diplomatic posts in the Middle East on an obscure, amateur video posted on YouTube.

Despite the fact that U.S. intelligence authorities believe almost one-third of the 600 detainees released from Guantanamo are confirmed or suspected of having returned to terrorism, Mr. Obama just named 55 more who are approved for departure.

It’s almost like they’re not serious about all this.

  1. “It’s almost like they’re not serious about all this.”

    They (Obama and his band of Chicago gangsters) are as serious about the Gitmo releases as they are about saying the Embassy attack in Benghazi, Libya was a planned strike by al-Qaeda terrorists.

    Why, cause it would cause obama to lose VOTES!

    Yup, The Democrats believe VOTES are more important than American lives.

  2. I read a sci fi short story once- I don’t recall the title- where if you could afford it you could live on your own Earth.

    It occupied the same place in spacetime as our familiar Earth, but existed in a separate reality. So you would live on an Earth where homo sapiens never evolved, say, and you were the only person on it, but via some technology would still commute to your job every morning on regular Earth.

    I’d like to leave this Earth now and live on the one that makes sense, please.

  3. Furthermore, if you take a look at the Canadian press on this issue, it will immediately become evident that the Cdn gov’t was extremely reluctant to take this guy back. We haven’t wanted him for a long long while, and this was practically forced on us by the American gov’t. Oh, and by the way, in Canada, our prison system is extraordinarily lenient – Khadr is eligible for parole in May 2013 (that’s 7 months away!)

  4. Canada should let him out now so they will not be the object of any attacks. They should pull all personal out of Afghanistan for the same reason.
