This is an American issue not a Canadian issue. Also Khadr and his family had given up Canadian Citizenship until it was a benefit to them. Canada should not get involved in an American issue. The US has the right to deal with this as they feel appropriate. If Kadr and his family did not want to be in this situation then they should not have gone over seas to train and to fight the Americans. They made choices and now they should have to deal with them. Canada should stay out of this and we should not get involved. I think the court is wrong
