The Star, Globe and CBC all now report the possibility of a plea deal in the case of Omar Khadr. Postmedia says he’ll be moved to Canadian custody.
Mr. Khadr rejected a deal earlier last spring—later saying openly that he would not plead guilty. The Harper government, which has long refused to intervene in Mr. Khadr’s case, distanced itself from any talk of a plea bargain when one was last rumoured (and, indeed, seems to be doing so this time as well), while other sources said a deal was unlikely so long as the White House remained silent.
