1. One photo isn’t the full story
Most liberal defenders of Khadr don’t like to mention the actual evidence about Khadr and his family.
For example, the most common photo published of Khadr was released to the press by his mother; it looks like a junior high yearbook photo.
But there are other, more recent photos and videos of Khadr around, including pictures of him handling explosives.
And there’s him posing next to an AK-47 machine-gun, practising building an IED (improvised explosive device), the type that has killed so many Canadian soldiers.
Don’t be swayed by the angelic picture you so often see.
