Only problem is, they're on the other side. At least in regards to this family of terrorists, that is. Truly incredible!
Although, Germany is right in there, too, along with the Spanish and Canadians in assisting the terrorists. They released the bosom-buddy and former roomie of Mohammed Atta, the other day, throwing out the charges of terrorist-conspiracy because they weren't able to obtain testimony from a terrorist currently stuck in Gitmo. Business as usual, eh?
Canada paid for the mother and brother of an Al Qaeda terrorist leader to be flown from Pakistan to Toronto. Business class.
Khadr mother, brother arrive in Canada.
Maha Elsamnah Khadr and her 14-year-old son Karim landed at Pearson International Airport from Pakistan. Wearing a white veil covering most of her face, Maha Elsamnah said “I have no connections to al-Qaeda.”
The Canadian government granted emergency passports to the two so Karim could receive medical treatment. ...
Karim was paralysed in a shootout with Pakistani troops during a raid against an al-Qaeda stronghold along the Afghanistan border in the fall of 2003. His father, suspected al-Qaeda leader Ahmed Said Khadr, was killed in the raid.
That’s not even the worst of it. The Khadr family has “lost” several passports.
And Canada kept sending new ones.
The elder Khadr’s widow and daughter have told CBC News they supported Ahmed Said and see him as a martyr.
They have been trying for months to get Canadian travel documents so they could return to Canada. Ottawa has been reluctant to grant their requests because the Khadr family has lost several passports.
Conservative foreign affairs critic Stockwell Day expressed outrage that Ottawa issued the emergency passports to Khadr family members.
“They’ve been involved with the worst terrorist killer ... of innocent people around the world, which is Osama bin Laden and now we’re putting them in business class, bringing them here to Canada for the whole world to see,” he said.
