In an interview on the US Broadcast Station, Rempel said “Most Canadians are absolutely outraged,” about the Canadian Government’s decision to payout Canadian citizen Omar Khadr $10.5-million.

Khadr was detained by the United States at Guantanamo Bay at the age of 16 and held for 10 years. During his time at Guantanamo he pleaded guilty to “murder in violation of the laws of war” and other charges.

Reaction on Twitter to her interview has some Canadians disagreeing with her generalization.
