  2. If it has been established that Omar did NOT throw the grenade that killed the American, why on earth was he not released IMMEDIATELY? Who (Canada or U.S.) is responsible for still denying him his freedom? This seems like insanity!

  4. Canada should take a stand against human rigts violations and particularly when those violations involve Canadian citizens. Canada has let young Mr. khadr down in a most reprehensible way by allowing American authorities to violate international laws with impunity. Shame on Harper and his ilk.

  7. Many authorities in both our countries should be ashamed—for their punitiveness, cruelty, complete lack of sensitivity, and lawlessness (disregarding international norms that Khadr was a child!) Miraculously Khadr in his first public statement tonight showed that he is calm, gentle, hopeful, optimistic, grateful for his release, and totally positive-saying that freedom is even better than he imagined, looking forward “starting his life” and wanting to simply put the past behind. No sign of anger or recrimination or festering hate or anything. I was amazed and impressed!
