Wash Cycle

Torture issue Afghan problem, not Canadian: PM

It's fascinating to observe on a regular basis how Stephen Harper makes it so hard for us to like him.

I'm sure he would point out that his job is running the afairs of the country and not winning popularity contests.


Here is his cheapest shot of all:

“The allegations are not being made – I hope – against Canadian soldiers.”

No, Mr. Prime Minister and you know very well that Canadian soldiers were never at question here.

It is the policy makers and leaders who are under fire for violating Geneva Conventions on the handling of detainees and prisoners.

To pretend that anyone was blaming soldiers on the front is specious at best and creepily manipulative at worst.

Get a new spin machine, please.
