"This week, Omar Khadr, the Canadian citizen and former child prisoner, was supposed to leave Guantánamo after nine years and three months in U.S. custody. No one thought that he would return to Canada as a free man because he has another seven years to serve in a Canadian jail as part of a plea deal he made at Guantánamo a year ago; but it was reasonable to expect that he would be transferred to Canadian custody this week, as the plea deal was for an eight-year sentence -- with one year to be served in Guantanamo, followed by seven in Canada."
