Liberals punted on 1st down with $10.5M Omar Khadr settlement

When Peter Kent wrote the opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal that tipped off sleeping Americans to the Omar Khadr payoff, he wrote not as a Conservative MP but as the journalist he once was.

This is why it resonated so strongly, and suddenly became the top news item on many U.S. networks and provoked so much outrage among American commentators over Khadr’s $10.5-million payday, despite the news being two weeks old.

Good writing will do that. Political talking points won’t.
