Trudeau Liberals Had a Secret Plan to Bring ISIS Terrorist 'Jihadi Jack' to Canada
The suspected ISIS member known as ‘Jihadi Jack’ was days away from being welcomed into Canada when the U.S. and U.K. torpedoed the move, a British politician claims.
Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle told Channel 4 that Jack Letts — whose father is Canadian — was to be smuggled out of Syria and brought here.
However, the federal government strongly denies the allegation.
“While we do not comment on national security operational matters, we can confirm that the claim made in the Daily Mail is categorically false,” Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale’s office said Friday in a statement to the Toronto Sun.
Letts, 23, left his Oxford home to join the Islamic State in 2014. He eventually married an Iraqi woman and the couple had a child.
According to Channel 4, the Canadian government allegedly vowed to “do everything” to get the troubled young man out of harm’s way. The plan involved smuggling Letts into Turkey and then Canada.
But the British Foreign Office allegedly torpedoed the Canadian gambit.
