Khadr fam­ily de­mo­nizes them­selves

RE: Enough with the anti-Khadr let­ters (Aug. 1)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

It ap­pears that the writer of this let­ter has not been pay­ing at­ten­tion. Omar Khadr comes from a fam­ily that per­pet­u­ates hate. His father was a money man for alQaida, his mother and sis­ter have stated pub­licly that they hate Canada and the U.S. There is no need for news­pa­pers to de­mo­nize Khadr and his fam­ily — they have achieved that sta­tus un­der their own power.

At the same time, the Cana­dian tax­payer, with that $10.5 mil­lion award, may be fi­nanc­ing ter­ror­ism and fu­elling the ha­tred, if there were no strings at­tached to that award.

Don’t blame the news­pa­pers, they try to (some­times), present both sides of the story, with of course their own bi­ases taken into ac­count! Su­san A. Frand­sen, Rock­ton
