Toronto-born Omar Khadr, who was 15 when he was captured in 2002, is accused of throwing a grenade that killed a Delta Force medic after a firefight in Afghanistan.

“When asked what he was most proud of in his life, he said conducting the operations against the Americans.”

“He was there because his father told him to go there,” Jackson said. “He was there because Ahmed Khadr hated his enemies more than he loved his son.”
