Liberals should have pushed for Khadrs' release

Graham has regrets over Khadr



Canada's former foreign affairs minister says he regrets his government did not push harder to get Omar Khadr out of Guantanamo Bay as other countries did for their citizens.

Bill Graham, who was the Liberal foreign affairs minister for the two years following Khadr's July 2002 capture, said the political climate in the early years after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks and the reputation of Khadr's family made the case unpopular in Ottawa.

But Graham says now that the Toronto-born Khadr is the sole Western detainee remaining at the U.S. prison in Cuba and there are international concerns about the legitimacy of the Bush administration's military war crimes trials, the circumstances are different.



Britian and Australia got their citizens out, I guess Canadas' citizens are unworthy?
