    Not sure what you refer to?
    Have not seen him in news for a while

    I read he's been invited to speak at Dalhousie University and the Twitterverse is going nuts.

    Is he a terrorist? Was he unfairly forced into a confession? The Canadian government settled with him for C$10 million, but he's still wanted here, I think, for the killing of a U.S. Serviceman.

    Just trying to know what I should think about this.

    TIL: Canada has also housed detainees in Gitmo.

    Well he is currently walking the streets

    He was held in Gitmo for killing that serviceman

    He was supposed to be -repatriated under the then Harper Conservatives--serving his sentence here
    they stalled

    And yup---they cut him a cheque for ten Mill
    turns out the legals figured his rights were violated as a citizen

    Trudeau continues to say that his legal advisers told him to fight the case up to the supreme court would have cost us double that---so they paid him

    Very contentious issue here

    I don't twitter so have not seen the blow up
    Not sure what qualifies him to speak at a University?

    they also labelled him a child soldier at the time
