Omar Khadr is asking Canadians to give him a second chance, to see that he's a good person. The former Guantanamo Bay inmate made his first public comments last night after spending a decade jailed in Cuba and three more years in Canadian prisons. The 28-year-old Toronto-born Khadr is out on bail after a judge refused a last-ditch attempt by the Harper government to keep him imprisoned. He spoke to reporters outside the home of his Edmonton lawyer, where he was asked about his father. (Khadr's late father was a friend of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden and moved the family to Afghanistan. Khadr is appealing his war crimes convictions -- he was 15 when he was charged for tossing a grenade that killed a US army medic in 2002.)
