“Today, we are announcing that the government of Canada has reached a settlement with Mr. Omar Khadr, bringing this civil case to a close,” the statement read.

“On behalf of the government of Canada, we wish to apologize to Mr. Khadr for any role Canadian officials may have played in relation to his ordeal abroad and any resulting harm.”

“We hope that this expression, and the negotiated settlement reached with the government, will assist him in his efforts to begin a new and hopeful chapter in his life with his fellow Canadians.”

The decision is likely to enrage Conservative opposition figures, and is already being seen as rewarding a man who, by his own admission, killed a US medic during the gunfight which led to his capture.

If they had tried them in the domestic courts instead of putting them in GITMO, it would have been a lot better. And it would have been done and over with.
