Canada to accept Guantanamo detainee

The Canadien government has agreed to accept Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr after he serves one year in U.S. custody, according to CNN.

Khadr originally agreed to plead guilty in exchange for an eight-year sentence, which was far fewer than the 40 year sentence that the military commission decided on Saturday.

After the Canadien-born Khadr's first year is served, he can apply for the transfer. The House of Commons said it will accept that transfer, according to the Toronto Sun.
