The Liberal government took steps to bar Omar Khadr from attending a celebration near Parliament Hill in late June where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was the keynote speaker, even though Mr. Khadr was not on the guest list for the invitation-only event.

Two sources have confirmed to The Globe and Mail that Mr. Khadr and his wife, Muna Abougoush, were in the Parliament Buildings on June 19, the same day as an annual celebration of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr in the Sir John A. Macdonald building, a parliamentary reception hall. The annual event includes members of the public, and MPs and senators from all parties.

A senior Liberal insider told The Globe on Monday that the government was worried that Mr. Khadr might meet with Liberal MPs or attend the Eid al-Fitr celebration, where Mr. Trudeau was speaking. The government has been highly criticized over a $10.5-million settlement and formal apology to the former child soldier for abuses he suffered while detained in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

It would have been better to let them do it in public on Parliament Hill. Not just for the message it sends about the government. More because it would have been a field-day for CSIS and the RCMP to take as many photos as possible of the participants in order to fill a lot of files full of pictures of the most-likely suspects that will be behind future terror attacks both overseas and here at home. Ditch how aggravating the thought of a Khadr celebrating anything admittedly is, this would have been a grand opportunity to put faces to names together in a hell of a lot of intelligence investigations.

Aggravating?

Disgusting, deplorable, degrading, and utterly tasteless are the words I came up with.

Asswipe should have been hung for treason, or fed to the polar bears in a remote part of the Arctic, at the very least!

Oh, I get it!
Guantanamo Bay is a model of virtuous justice! Whatever they see is The Gospel truth!
