Canadian Court Say G’itmo Bad

This story is 5 days old, but, I was popping in to the ACLU website, trying to see if I could remember some story I heard on the radio this morning about something happeing in the NC legislature that would send the ACLU in to a hissy fit, and this was front page for them

The Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) ruled today that Canadian officials violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms – analogous to the U.S. Bill of Rights – by turning over interrogation records of Canadian citizen Omar Khadr to the United States. The court reached this result after finding that, at the time Canadian officials interrogated him, Khadr was being detained and prosecuted at Guantánamo in violation of U.S. and international law.

Khadr was 15 when he was shot and captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan in July 2002. The SCC, citing decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, wrote that “the conditions under which Mr. Khadr was held and was liable for prosecution were illegal under both U.S. and international law at the time Canadian officials interviewed Mr. Khadr and gave information to U.S. authorities,” and it ordered Canadian officials to turn over the records of Khadr’s interrogations to his defense lawyers.

Now, I thing Canada is great. They invented ice hockey. Plus, lots of other great things. Great beer’s. Rush. April Wine. Bob and Doug McKenzie. Take off, eh! Nice people. Did I mention they invented ice hockey? Just wanted to make sure. But, this is just fucking absurd. How soon till some idiot US court uses this ruling by a foreign court here in the US?

    all nations that use torture feel justified in doing so

    And I thought that torture via S&M was pleasure in Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of San Fransicko? Can we swap EDMONTON & CALGARY ALBERTA for Washington state and Oregon Teach? Did you realize that the Mother Canuckers have LESS than 10,000 Canadian military personnel in their supposed armed forces? Guess who is protecting their SOUTHERN borders? Iceland can easily invade Nova Scotia… no problem! Obamessiah & Hellary know MORE about torture than John McCain does, eh? John Ryan can put his GITMO Boy Scout detainees up at his house I suppose?

    At least the Mother Canuckers gives US oil… for our stupidity in giving the Japs 60% of our Alaskan pipeline oil? But the Caribou are safe Dudley Do Lefts!
