U.S. Gives Chrétien a Mulligan for Terrorist-Friendly Agenda
Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien recently vacationed in the Dominican Republic, where he teed off with former U.S. president Bill Clinton in the Soft-on-Terror Masters Tournament.We know. We know.
While Chrétien golfs, his fellow countryman and favorite accused terrorist Ahmad Said Khadr still is on the loose.
Khadr, an Egyptian-born Canadian citizen, is considered by intelligence officials to be the highest-ranking Canadian within Osama bin Laden's inner circle. He studied computer science at the University of Ottawa and worked for an Ottawa-based Islamic charity, Human Concern International, which Chrétien's government generously subsidized.
Khadr is suspected of diverting charity funds to bin Laden and other jihadists, and of serving as a chief terrorist recruiter. Known as al-Kanadi (Arabic for "the Canadian"), Khadr previously had been in custody in Pakistan for the 1995 bombing of the Egyptian Embassy in Islamabad that killed 17 people.
