The absolute true facts story of the innocent Omar Khadr

Prior to July 2002, everybody who knew the young Omar Khadr identified him as a Canadian. He liked BMWs, basketball and action movies. He named a visit to the Metro Toronto Zoo among the best memories of his life. His father earned a master’s degree from the University of Ottawa, and his grandparents owned a bakery on Toronto’s Eglinton Ave. But, like the children of Canadian diplomats, Omar had a father whose work took the family overseas for long stretches of time.

“We were Canadian,” said his older sister Zaynab of their time overseas, “it was hard to miss that.”

Uh huh.
