This wasn't a case of mistaken identity or wrongful imprisonment. Omar Khadr admitted to killing an American soldier -- but was still awarded $10.5m by Canada's supreme court, and an official apology by the Canadian government, for violating his civil rights. Nothing can be funnier than the state of doom for the civilization that pretends to exist north of our borders.
Back in 2010, Canada's supreme court ruled that human rights were being violated at Guantanamo Bay. As such, anyone held there, who happened to be a Canadian citizen, was very likely to win lawsuits.
Enter Omar Khadr.
"The deprivation of [Khadr's] right to liberty and security of the person is not in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice," the court ruled.
"The interrogation of a youth detained without access to counsel, to elicit statements about serious criminal charges while knowing that the youth had been subjected to sleep deprivation and while knowing that the fruits of the interrogations would be shared with the prosecutors, offends the most basic Canadian standards about the treatment of detained youth suspects."
Poor Omar underwent sleep deprivation. As such, Ottawa awarded him $10.5m.
