He is exceedingly dangerous. He is more jihadist than ever – even refusing to meet with liberal Muslim chaplains sent to him at Guantanamo Bay. He has refused to acknowledge that what he did was wrong, or that his father’s terrorism before him was wrong. He has a Rolodex of hundreds of fellow terrorists who have been his friends for 10 years – 600 of whom have been released, many of whom are back committing terrorism.
He has no ties to Canada other than his sister and mother in Toronto who are unrepentant supporters of al-Qaida, who are egging him on, encouraging him to continue as a terrorist, to pick up where his dad left off.
If Omar Khadr isn’t kept out by this list of warning factors, then no criminal can ever be kept out, because there will never be another prisoner who is more in violation of these rules than Khadr is.
