The timing cannot be a coincidence; 365 days in a year, and Justin Trudeau chose the Fourth of July to not only give $10 million dollars to Canadian-born Al Qaeda terrorist Omar Khadr, but to actually give him an apology in the name of Canada.
I’ll show you an Al Qaeda propaganda video of Omar Khadr with explosives in Afghanistan. We don’t know how many Canadians Khadr murdered through these IEDs, or how much of a bounty he received.
We do know that he killed U.S. Army medic Christopher Speer, husband to Tabitha Speer, dad to Taryn and Tanner Speer.
Before Khadr killed him, Speer spent as much time giving first aid to Afghan kids as he did to U.S. soldiers.
In Guantanamo Bay, Khadr boasted to guards that killing Speer was the best day in his life. He called a black female guard a bitch and a slave.
Khadr confessed — not under duress but with the approval of his lawyers — and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
But the Obama administration cut a deal, so he’s back on Canada’s streets.
And now Trudeau is giving him an apology and more than $10 million.
Not a penny, though, for the family of Christopher Speer.
That’s Trudeau’s message to America on the Fourth of july.
And it’s Trudeau message to every one of us, including our armed forces, our wounded vets from Afghanistan too.
