Knowing that Osama bin Laden purportedly attended the wedding of Omar Khadr’s beloved sister, it should come as no surprise that the chauffeur of the former al-Qaeda leader has come into the mix regarding Canada’s poster-boy terrorist.
How? Well, last week there was a U.S. court ruling that Canadian Press somehow thinks has “cast a shadow on the validity of Omar Khadr’s war crimes convictions.”
Forget about it.
Long story short, a three-judge panel with the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington threw out the 2008 conviction of Osama’s driver for “providing material support for terrorism” by being his wheelman, ruling so such crime existed under international law at the time of his alleged offence.
No crime, no time.
The difference, however, it that Khadr pleaded guilty — with murder trumping any court’s decision about his guilt, as well as to “providing material support for terrorism.”
Also Khadr waived any right to appeal.
So he is going nowhere, folks, and the Harper government should make this clear.
By the by, guess how much the millionaire Osama bin Laden was paying his driver?
Fifty bucks a week, the cheap bugger.
