Why is Canada Cutting Checks to Suspected Terrorists?

It began in 2007 after a lengthy, expensive and mostly closed-door inquiry the led to a $10.5 million payoffto Maher Arar. Arar was a joint Canadian-Syrian citizen under pre-9/11 investigation by the RCMP and others regarding his activities and associations related to Islamist terrorism.

Despite being aware of the investigation, Arar left Canada in 2002 for extended international travel and was detained when he flew into New York. He then was transferred by U.S. officials to Syria. He subsequently claimed he was tortured because of information provided by Canadian officials.

    NEW DELHI: India needs to “cherish and nurture” its Muslim population, which is integrated and considers itself Indian, former US president Barack Obama has said. It is an idea that needs to be reinforced, he emphasised at an event of a media organisation in New Delhi on Friday.

      India needs to deport its Muslim population to Pakistan, and offer Hindu’s in Pakistan the right of return and citizenship.

    • Muslims integrated? Has Obama never cracked a history book? Because if he has, then he would know about the India/Pakistan partition, and why these two rivals have armed themselves to the teeth with nuclear weapons.

    • And he is still walking around?

  • The suspected terrorists need to be investigated and prosecuted for War Crimes and “crimes against humanity” where applicable. In fact, the fact that Justin isn’t doing that means that Canada herself is probably in breach of International Law, and may be reason enough to kick Canada out of the U.N. (if the U.N. followed its own rules).

    Why Is Trudope a treasonous douche?

      Look at who his father is, so what can we expect. Look a which countries he says he admires, China and Cuba, so what can we expect. Look at the morons that voted him in, so what can we expect. Is there not enough Canadians left in Canada, that should expect more? Hopefully by 2019 Canadians will have had enough, right? I for one have had enough and being almost 70, God willing, will have the chance to see this moron out stead.

    • Since when did he have allegiance to this country which he claims is “post-national”?

    It is wise to use as many strategies as possible for government payouts that ultimately involve kickbacks to the Liberal Party of Canada.

    Now if you happen to fund jihad on the way, that is just an unavoidable side issue.

      I hear the lieberals do lousy when it comes to campaign donations. You gotta’ grab it where you can. Kickbacks work!

  • Because doing so coaxes the egos of the corrupt Liberals AND buys votes.

    That’s worth $10.5 million.

    He will win again, because he is so young and cool, has great hair and funny socks. Those are the only requirements to be prime minister.

  • ontario john

    He has lots of money for terrorists, now that he had his courts throw out the case for pensions for injured soldiers.

    That headline is wrong.

    Omar Khadr is not a “suspected terrorist” but an “admitted terrorist”.

      Point taken but I believe it is in reference to Arar.
