The Harper government’s handling of the Omar Khadr affair has been nothing short of a disgrace:

Ottawa must seek Khadr’s return, court rules

OTTAWA—The Canadian Press Last updated on Friday, Aug. 14, 2009 12:27PM EDT

The Federal Court of Appeal has upheld a ruling ordering the government to seek the return of Omar Khadr from a U.S. military prison.

In a 2-1 judgment released Friday , the court dismissed an appeal by the Harper government, which did not want to ask that Mr. Khadr be sent home.

Of course Michael Ignatief’s calls for Khadr’s return seem a little hollow, given his past support for the use of torture as a tool in democracies.
