Blinded Soldier, Widow Sue Former GTMO Prisoner

It was reported earlier this week by the Associated Press that an American soldier blinded in an Afghanistan blast and the widow of another soldier have filed suit against Omar Khadr, the Canadian man who signed a plea deal in 2010 admitting his role in several war crimes,

“As part of the deal, Khadr admitted to throwing the grenade that killed Speer and injured other soldiers, including Morris, who lost sight in one eye from the shrapnel, the lawsuit states. The Toronto-born Khadr is serving the remainder of his eight-year sentence in Canada.”
