This wasn't a case of mistaken identity or wrongful imprisonment. Omar Khadr admitted to killing an American soldier -- but was still awarded $10.5m by Canada's supreme court, and an official apology by the Canadian government, for violating his civil rights. Nothing can be funnier than the state of doom for the civilization that pretends to exist north of our borders.

Back in 2010, Canada's supreme court ruled that human rights were being violated at Guantanamo Bay. As such, anyone held there, who happened to be a Canadian citizen, was very likely to win lawsuits.

Enter Omar Khadr.

"The deprivation of [Khadr's] right to liberty and security of the person is not in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice," the court ruled.
 
"The interrogation of a youth detained without access to counsel, to elicit statements about serious criminal charges while knowing that the youth had been subjected to sleep deprivation and while knowing that the fruits of the interrogations would be shared with the prosecutors, offends the most basic Canadian standards about the treatment of detained youth suspects."

 
Poor Omar underwent sleep deprivation. As such, Ottawa awarded him $10.5m.

Omar was 16 when he was picked up by US forces. He's being described as a 'child soldier' by Canadian press -- a victim in his own right. The Canadian supreme court stated that in spite of the fact that he was and still is a confessed terrorist, he should retain his rights as a Candian citizen. Moreover, by permitting American forces to detain him in Guantanamo Bay, by extension the Canadian government was complicit in violating his civil rights.

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

In 2010, Khadr pleaded guilty to killing Sgt. Chris Speer, in addition to attempted murder, conspiracy, providing support to terrorists.

"As held by this Court in Khadr 2008, Canada's participation in the illegal process in place at Guantanamo Bay clearly violated Canada's binding international obligations," the Supreme Court wrote in 2010, noting that Khadr had been denied access to counsel and was unable to challenge the legality of his detention.

Khadr did sue for $20m, so the Canadian government did achieve a very minor victory here. Since Omar was released on bail in 2015, he will now get to enjoy his newly minted tax payer fortune without the inconvenience of being imprisoned for crimes he did commit.
