A controversial look at the headline-making story of the last Western prisoner at Guantanamo Bay and the larger implications to national security, justice, and international relations.
Omar Khadr is the last Western prisoner at the Guantanamo Bay detention centre. He has been held at the American naval base since October 2002, accused of killing a U.S. sergeant in Afghanistan. Khadr was fifteen at the time. His defence team argued that their client was a child soldier and should be treated as a victim. After several years of procedural wrangling, Khadr went before a U.S. military court. In October, he pled guilty, in an agreement that allows him to be transferred to Canada after one year.
This controversial new book will be published to coincide with Omar Khadr's return to Canada in late 2011. It will include shocking information about the Khadr family, Khadr's psychological assessment, and his trial that has often been ignored in the mainstream media. Challenging the conventional wisdom about the Khadr case, The Enemy Within is a provocative look at the definition of "child soldier," life at Guantanamo Bay, the media coverage of the case, a tainted plea bargain, and the Canadian government's plan for Omar Khadr's rehabilitation upon his return to Canada.
In this hard-hitting book, Ezra Levant also uses Khadr's story to address larger questions about how Canadians view immigration, terrorism, law and justice, and Canada's relationship with the United States.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It Ezra Levant tells it like it is and unmasks, reveals and debunks the myths of Omar Khadr as a poor, misguided youth thrown into a war against his wishes and beliefs. He's shown to be a terrorist from a family of terrorists who hide behind the laws of democracies while all the while fomenting the destruction of democratic western values, freedoms and governments. The unwillingness of the left wing liberal establishment media and hollywood elites to denounce Khadr is expertly and irrefutably proven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-written and heartfelt, if biased and thin on international law Like Ezra Levant this book offers more heat than light, but it is also entertaining easy to read and able to go into great detail about Christopher Speer, Khadr's murder victim and detail just how awful most of the Khadr family is. This book will make you think. Indeed, at the end of it I had a thought provoking question, why are Khadr's mother and sister in jail, after all, unlike KKhadr, they cannot say they were too young at the time to fully appreciate the nature of their acts? It's just a thought
