You can't blame Obama. He's just trying to help his Muslim brethren.

My frustration is with the Obama administration and their continued refusal to accept the will of the American people: that these most dangerous of the most dangerous detainees be kept in Guantanamo Bay," Morris said from West Valley, Utah, where he is deputy city manager.
"I don't think (Khadr) is done with radical Islam. I don't think he's done with the jihad."
Morris, 50, was hit by shrapnel and lost the sight in one eye during the attack on the compound in which Khadr, then 15 years old, was found near death in the rubble and Delta Force soldier, Sgt. Chris Speer, was left mortally wounded.
In October 2010, Khadr pleaded guilty before a military commission to five war crimes, including murder for throwing the grenade that killed Speer. In return, he was given a further eight years behind bars but allowed to return to Canada last Saturday to serve out the sentence.
Morris's anger is palpable.
"This is a young man that despite 10 years in Guantanamo and every attempt and opportunity to educate himself and prepare himself for life in a western society has done nothing," said Morris, who found out from a Canadian reporter the transfer had taken place.
"He went in with an eight-grade education, he's come out with an eighth-grade education. Other than memorize the Qu'ran and be regarded as the 'rock star' of Guantanamo by the other inmates, all he's done is prepare himself for further jihad."

Omar Khadr should be put to death.
