In the U.K., terror-plotters get life not millions of dollars: DiManno

LONDON — On the same day we learned that Canada is going to make a multi-millionaire out of undisputed bomb-maker and disputed — if self-admitted (lies, all lies) — U.S. soldier-killer Omar Khadr, a London judge sentenced a teenage wannabe terrorist to life in prison with no possibility of parole for 16-and-a-half years.

No connection? Well, there is actually, if only because Khadr has convinced enough judicial and government authorities that he was 1) a child soldier protected by international covenants, left to twist in the Guantanamo wind by Ottawa, under both Liberal and Conservative regimes; and 2) that he was tortured whilst detained. Thus the Toronto native will be compensated large.
