Al Qaeda Careers

Six, seven years in Gitmo with untouchable Koran’s, halal burgers and support from a taxpayer funded army of protective shysters work wonders: the re-socialized  head choppers  come out all fired up and quickly climb the AQ career ladder:

Others, like  Adnan Shukrijumah, enjoy motherly love:

“This boy would never do evil stuff. He is not an evil person,” she said. “He loved this country. He never had a problem with the United States.”

MIAMI [AP]— A suspected al-Qaida operative who lived for more than 15 years in the U.S. has become chief of the terror network’s global operations, the FBI says, marking the first time a leader so intimately familiar with American society has been placed in charge of planning attacks. Read more » (Islamization Watch)

On Monday, the judge hearing Omar Khadr’s murder trial in Guantanamo Bay ruled that Khadr’s taped confessions can be admitted at trial.

Canada’s little terrorist is as good as done.

But what remains to be seen is whether the liberal media will save the myth of Omar Khadr — the myth they have painstakingly built in collusion with Khadr’s lawyers.

this Khadr, the mythical Khadr created by the CBC and the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail, the Khadr from a junior high school photo provided to the media by his mother, will live on for a long time:

Trial starts for Guantanamo’s youngest detainee

Jury selection for the trial of Guantanamo’s youngest detainee, Canadian Omar Khadr, began Wednesday, with the former child combatant becoming the first to face a military tribunal under President Barack Obama.

At the start of Tuesday’s court proceedings, an official read out five charges against Khadr, including murder, espionage and material support for terrorism.

Radhika Coomaraswamy, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s special representative for children and armed conflict, slammed the trial, insisting that “children should not be tried before military tribunals”. (RFI-Islamization Watch)
