Justice and what the courts say are not always the same thing.
Thank you.FJAG said:Honestly guys. This s**t is getting lame. :blah: Move on.
tomahawk6 said:Gateway Pundit has a piece on Khadr. On Fox news Tucker Carlson interviewed a soldier who was blinded by Khadr's grenade. By giving Omar 10.5 million the Canadian government has provided the people he injured/killed the means to achieve restitution that they otherwise wouldnt have gotten.Seems fair.

While I know that the army receives legal training to a small extent, no one outside of the legal system/SCC is qualified or has the expertise to make the decisions.
It'd be akin to show a justice how to use a C7 and then having him brief the Bn Comd on how a BG attack went on based on his training.
So no- I categorically do not believe that 26 years of military experience, outside the JAG branch, counts in this regard.
