Canada to pay $8 million to confessed killer of U.S. Special Ops soldier

Hot Air - Thu, 07/06/2017 - 12:01

The admitted killer of an American Special Ops soldier in Afghanistan will receive $8 million in damages from the Canadian government, plus an official apology for mistreatment.

You read that right.

That’s the reported agreement between the Liberal Canadian government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the fighter, Omar Khadr, 30. He spent a decade in the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility after being captured in a 2002 firefight at an al Qaeda compound in which Special Ops Sgt. First Class Christopher Speer was killed.

In a 2010 plea bargain the Canadian-born Khadr confessed to throwing the grenade that killed Speer, an Army medic.

“I’m very familiar with the Khadr family,” said Sgt. Layne Morris, who lost an eye in the same blast, among other serious wounds. “This is the third generation of Khadrs that owe humanity an apology, not the other way around. I shudder to think what $10 million (Canadian) in the hands of an avowed and accomplished terrorist will do.”

Khadr’s father, Ahmad, was a trained terrorist and alleged money man for Osama bin Laden who moved his family from Egypt to Pakistan. He was killed in a 2003 skirmish with Pakistani troops.

Under the Khadr son’s agreement with military prosecutors, he pled guilty to murder, attempted murder, providing material support for terrorism, spying and conspiracy. He received an eight-year prison sentence.

Remember President Obama had been trying to em pty Guantanamo. In 2012, Khadr was returned to Canada to serve the remaining six years. But three years later a Canadian judge granted bail, pending appeal of his sentence.

Once in Canada, Khadr also sued its federal government for $20 million for not protecting its citizen and for allowing U.S. interrogators to abuse him through sleep deprivation during interrogations. He claimed his confession came under duress. Canada’s Supreme Court ruled that Canadian intelligence obtained the confession under “oppressive circumstances,” then shared it with American colleagues.

Speer’s widow and Special Ops teammate have filed papers to seize any funds paid Khadr under a successful U.S. lawsuit.

Asked about the Toronto Star’s report that his government would pay multi-million dollar damages and apologize to the confessed killer of a coalition soldier, Prime Minister Trudeau declared unequivocally:

“There is a judicial process underway that has been underway for a number of years now and we are anticipating, like I think a number of people are, that that judicial process is coming to its conclusion.”

Trump says more than Russia may have interfered in U.S. elections

JamieDupree - Thu, 07/06/2017 - 11:52

Getting ready for his expected first in-person meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin tomorrow in Germany, President Donald Trump told reporters in Poland on Thursday that Russia and “other people and other countries” may have been responsible for interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, as he once more blamed the last President for not doing enough about the cyber threat during the campaign.

“It could have been a lot of people interfered,” the President said during a news conference in Warsaw, where he was asked about Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.

“I’ve said it very simply, I think it could very well have been Russia, I think it could well have been other countries,” Mr. Trump added, as he again tweaked former President Barack Obama, saying that officials of the last administration did not do enough to stop Russia – mainly because they didn’t think Hillary Clinton would lose.

“Why did he do nothing about it?” the President asked during a news conference, referring to his predecessor.

“Nobody really knows for sure,” the President said about whether Russia was solely responsible.

That assessment that ‘other countries’ may have been involved in 2016 election meddling goes directly against the assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community, which has publicly pointed the finger of blame at Russia since late in last year’s campaign.

The matter will get a lot more attention as Mr. Trump gets ready to meet with the Russian leader, as Democrats in Congress continue to press the President to directly raise Russia’s involvement.

“POTUS must raise Russia’s interference in our election with Putin, or the Kremlin will conclude he is too weak to confront them directly,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Twitter, who is the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

“A lot of people interfere. It’s been happening for a long time,” the President said, a day before he is set to meet with Putin on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany.

Standing with the Polish President Andrzej Duda, Mr. Trump did send a message to Russia about any meddling in central Europe, saying the U.S. and NATO were “working with Poland in response to Russia’s actions and destabilizing behavior.”

There was quick reaction from the Kremlin to that statement by Mr. Trump.

“We disagree with this approach,” the Kremlin spokesman told reporters in Moscow.

“Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump will be able to exchange opinions and understand genuine approaches of each other towards bilateral relations at the first personal meeting in Hamburg,” the official TASS news agency reported after Mr. Trump’s remarks.
