canada knew about afghan rape law in advance

It turns out that Canadian diplomats had advance knowledge of Afghanistan's "rape law", weeks before the laws were passed. Antonia Z has some questions.
1. If Canadian diplomats knew but didn't think it worth a briefing, what do they understand about our mission in Afghanistan?

2. If Canadian diplomats knew and actually did give the government a briefing, why didn't we hear about this law sooner?

3. Why are Canadian men and women dying to keep Karzai in power?

4. Isn't our "mission" in Afghanistan supposed to be humanitarian?

Canada out of Afghanistan now.

Exactly. What a horrible thing not to prevent!!! Send Harper and Kenney packing. Hope there's soon an election or another confidence vote. This sort of negligence is outrageous and abusive and at odds with women's human rights to the utmost.
