Omar Khadr rallies held in Canada

Social activists across Canada held rallies to put pressure on the Harper government to bring Omar Khadr back home, to Canada.

There are a number of news stories in the western media, check this page out. Lots in Canada, of course and one from International Herald Tribune(France), also one in the Jerusalem Post?

Interesting.

France I get, as they play a role in Quebec politics, why? who knows? But apparently before the election Sarkozy had a campaign office in Quebec.

Wondering why Israel is that interested in what is going on in Canada over a Guantanamo detainee?

But then wasn't that Conrad Black's paper, before jail ? Or is it still ?
Conrad Black, now there is a story for another day............ so maybe that's why.

But what is the most interesting of all?
I couldn't find any American press coverage.
Don't the American public need to know? should know? want to know?
After all it is their torture chamber, on that one Island that delivered a big blow to the US ego, and most importantly where all the torture is done in their name.

  1. And then there's Conrad Black's attempt to push his way into the Australian media market. Then PM Paul Keating hated Black with a white hot passion. And the feeling was pretty mutual. Anyway Keating won and drove Black from Oz. He bleated victimhood but no one gave a toss.

    Meanwhile we're still stuck with Murdoch...

    Did you read that whisper, allegedly from within the French security services, that Sarkozy is a Mossad agent? It passes the sniff test for me.

    Yeah, I heard that - and yeah I find it passes the 'sniff' test for me too.

  3. Canada's abandonment on Khadr is especially disappointing. There is a petition to ask that the Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, protect his citizens here: http://go.care2.com/15898432
