Buried deep inside a National Post story about how the Liberals desperately hunted a “unicorn” — a principled Liberal bureaucrat — is an admission that Trudeau structured the $10.5 million payout to terrorist Omar Khadr, to keep it out of the hands of his victims' families.
The news of the payment was leaked July 3, 2017, the day before the Canadian born al-Qaeda terrorist was to receive his cash. The Liberals had planned to keep a lid on it until the end of July when their media spin strategy would be firmly in place.
Global Affairs had initially transferred the money to the wrong bank account, delaying the payout to Khadr by one day and causing notifications of the failed payment to spread across the government.
After the leak hit the media, the Liberals spent two months getting six bureaucracies and agencies to go on a manhunt for the whistleblower.
Government incompetence isn't shocking news. But the Access to Information proof obtained by the National Post showing that Justin Trudeau co-operated with a terrorist to hide his money from his victims, is.
“The transfer did not have Khadr’s name on it, as it was going through the Bank of Canada to a bank account held in the name of an ‘unknown and unrelated third party.’ It is possible the transfer was sent to a third party to protect it against legal manoeuvring from the families of American soldiers killed by Khadr’s alleged actions in Afghanistan, but the report does not address that.
However, the report says PSPC employees nonetheless ‘came to the conclusion that the payment was probably for Mr. Khadr,’ largely because of the media stories, and realized its importance.”
The feds knowingly sent money to a third party to a bank account not associated with Khadr.
Imagine our wounded warriors and veterans getting this level of concierge service and first class care from the federal government?
But you know what Trudeau thinks of them. He told them:
They're just asking for more than he can give.
