US Squaddies *sue* terrorists!

Only in America, but I like it.

In a nutshell, an injured GI and his mate's widow sue an AQ financier.

Omar Khadr, then 15, had wounded him and killed Speer. The ruling, released Friday, cited similar evidence that the boy's father, suspected financier Ahmad Sa'id Khadr, was linked to al-Qaida and trained his son to attack American targets.

Morris and Speer, who served with the 19th Special Forces, were attacked with grenades and automatic weapons in a remote Afghanistan village. Shrapnel severed the optic nerve in Morris' right eye, blinding him.

Soldiers arrested the boy, who is being held at the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay. The Canadian government has protested the boy's imprisonment, because he is a minor.

In November, the U.S. government charged the boy with murder, attempted murder, conspiracy and aiding the enemy.

The ruling said the younger Khadr was 4 years old when his family moved from Canada to Pakistan, where his father co-founded a humanitarian relief organization that supported al-Qaida terrorist training camps. The boy returned to Canada in 1994, where he attended school for a year while his father was imprisoned in Pakistan on charges of funding the bombing of the Egyptian Embassy in Pakistan, the court said.
Because he's Canadian he can be sued in a US court. For $ 102.6 million.

And he is going to have kind of money handy? Feel sorry for the yanks lads but this is kicking the arrse something stupid.

As he is being held in Guantanamo, I take it his legal status will change from a POW to common scum criminal to allow this case to proceed?

Gents, the whole point of the story is that dad is an alleged AQ financier with lots of money tied up here and there.

The idea is that they're asset-stripping him via lawsuit.
