I've heard plenty about his whole family in the news, none of it good. His father was very close to OBL, and is said to have diverted charitable
funds to Al-Qaeda. His own mother took him out of Canada at the age of 14 and enrolled him in a terrorist training camp with his brothers.
His father and one brother were killed in a firefight in Afghanistan, one brother has gone underground and is said to have run a training camp. His
sister is married to a terrorist. One brother defected and works for the CIA.
I read an article about his case in the Sun a couple weeks ago. He was captured after killing a medic in the initial invasion of Afghanistan, and is
reported to be very hardcore these days.
Quite bluntly, the entire family has been a constant concern for the last few years, and is admittedly unrepentant. Not only should they be denied
passports, they should be deported altogether.
Edit: Finally found the sun article about Omar himself:
