Hillary Clinton and Omar Khadr: Bashings From Left And Right

Posted by Phoenix Woman on December 12, 2015

Two weeks ago, I posted this diary over at Daily Kos about Kerry Eleveld’s and Jason Leopold’s excellent reporting on Hillary Clinton’s spending much of the last few months of her time as Secretary of State quietly working to take Omar Khadr, the Canadian-born young man whose father took him from his home at fifteen years of age and made him fight alongside him against coalition forces in Afghanistan, from Gitmo – the place where Khadr had spent most of his teens and all of his adult life – and send him back to Canada, where he’s now living with his lawyer’s family in Edmonton, Alberta.

We all knew that right-wing sites like the Daily Caller would bash Hillary over this (“Emails: Hillary Cheered Transfer Of Gitmo Detainee Who Killed American Soldier With Grenade”).   Sadly, her leftist critics aren’t much better.  (Or as informed on the case as many of them think they are, as was pointed out in response to the ones falsely claiming that he’s still in prison.)

Sigh.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
