Omar Khadr is the only child soldier to be prosecuted for war crimes in modern times, in blatant disregard for International Law. He is the last remaining Western citizen to be left in Guantanamo Bay, having spent over 10 years in torturous conditions condemned by the UN, Canadian courts, and international human rights organizations.In October 2010, after years of dragging its feet, Canada finally decided that Omar would spend one more year in Guantanamo Bay and seven more years in a Canadian prison.That one year in Guantanamo Bay was up in October 2011. Omar Khadr should now be brought back to Canada, in accordance with the plea agreement, the law, and Canada's own commitments.The Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Canada, and the Federal Court of Appeal support his return to Canada.The United Nations Committee Against Torture has condemned Canada for its treatment of Omar and called for his transfer back to Canada.Even the US has chastised Canada for stalling his transfer and is eager to send Omar back.
