Canada: Bleeding hearts for Omar Khadr

Khadr’s Gitmo ordeal played out in video

* CSIS agents warned him that family risked torture in Pakistan

* Video shows weeping Canadian Guantanamo inmate (Reuters weeps along..)

Here’s the video of Omar Khadr, the Islamic terrorist captured on a battlefield in Afghanistan after throwing a grenade that killed a US soldier, sobbing and weeping and feeling sorry for himself. This little SoB is a killer and his whole clan is involved in terrorism. And the left feels sorry for this piece of human waste?

A 16-year-old Omar Khadr is seen pulling at his hair, covering his face and shedding his tunic in stills taken from videotapes of Canadian officials interrogating the Toronto-born terror suspect in Guantanamo Bay in 2003. Omar Khadr was 15 when U.S. forces seized him in Afghanistan following a firefight. He is now 21 and still being held in the Guantanamo prison camp.

Reality behind crying Gitmo kid vid: “My lasting image of Omar is of him crouched in the rubble waiting for U.S. troops to get close enough so he could take one of them out”

Footage of Omar Khadr weeping and calling out for Mommy has been circulating around, renewing charges that Guantanamo is a torture camp. Yet a soldier who encountered Omar Khadr in different circumstances says that he deserves what he has been getting. “Khadr ‘earned’ Guantanamo stay, says soldier,” by Stewart Bell for the National Post via JW
