Before I made Detective, I worked for six years, two months and thirteen days in uniform within the cell blocks of a major Denver-Metro Sheriff’s Office jail.  We had an entire unit filled with juvenile males, all of whom stood accused of first degree murder.  The youngest was fourteen.  Each had been transferred to our adult facility because they were too violent for the local juvenile detention center to handle. Charged as adults, each was convicted and sent to prison for life.  Several of the murders were unimaginable in their cruelty.

A major American newspaper is eliciting sympathy and understanding for a Guantanamo Bay prisoner, a Jihad-waging soldier of Allah captured at age fifteen in Afghanistan, after he lobbed two fragmentation grenades at American GIs, killing one and blinding the other.Omar Khadr has been assigned to a military tribunal to be tried and adjudicated.  He is a Canadian citizen.  U.N. officials, human rights advocates and of course, defense lawyers, say Khadr should be rehabilitated because of his childhood indoctrination into the ways of jihad.  He’s a victim.

The Washington Post Story is here:

“Omar Khadr, the youngest detainee at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was 15 when he allegedly threw a grenade that killed a U.S. Special Forces medic in Afghanistan. Now, more than seven years later, Khadr is drawing the Obama administration into a fierce debate over the propriety of putting a child soldier on trial.

The struggle against al-Qaeda has thrown up few detainees with as baleful and unlikely a background as Khadr’s — a father who moved his family to Afghanistan and inside Osama bin Laden’s circle of intimates when Omar was 10; a mother and sister who said the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks were deserved; and a brother, the black sheep of the clan, who said he became a CIA asset after his capture in Afghanistan.

This background has convinced U.N. officials, human rights advocates and defense lawyers that Khadr, a Canadian citizen, was an indoctrinated child soldier and, in line with international practice in other conflicts, should be rehabilitated, not prosecuted…”

Using this logic, all prisoners, regardless of age, who are captured in acts of violent  jihad against Infidels should be rehabilitated.  For they are all pitiful victims of their life-long indoctrination into the ways of Muhammad and jihad.

This line of thinking is too much for me to stomach.  It is no wonder that there is such disillusionment, discord, disunity, disarray, disharmony, and abject misunderstanding of Islam within The United States of America, when major news outlets such as The Washington Post continue to engage in this kind of effusive, sniveling, sickening solicitation of sympathy for jihadist GI-killers such as Omar Khadr.
