A former U.S. Army special forces sergeant wounded by the grenade thrown by former al-Qaida terrorist Omar Khadr that killed Sgt. Chris Speer in Afghanistan in 2002 says Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau should be charged with treason, The Daily Caller reports.
Layne Morris told the Toronto Sun on Saturday that Trudeau’s decision feels “like a punch in the face” with the Canadian government paying Khadr a $10.5 million cash settlement as well as offering a formal apology.
The 55-year-old veteran, who was with Sgt. Speer when the Canadian Khadr threw a grenade, said, “It feels like a dirty deal to me.”
Morris was also not pleased that Trudeau paid the multi-million dollar settlement money to Khadr in secret so that it will be known to any American courts.
He also asks why the government offered Khadr so much money. “Is it going to fund a Harvard education?”
Morris said Canadians should be outraged and demand answers from their government. “It’s their money,” he said.
