Khadr Story demonstrates impotence of the Canadian Government to the Americans

Khadr, a Canadian citizen and Guantanamo prisoner for the last eights, was sentenced by US Milititary tribunnal 40 years for murder, but will only serve an additional 8 years of imprisonment due to a plea bargain prior to trial. Khadr was a child when he was first abducted by the Americans in Afghanistan. Unlike all other western countries with prisoners in Guantanamo Bay, the Canadian government did not secure his release, and knowingly allowed him to be subject to torture over those eight years.
