unredacted documents = the smoking gun

Stephen Harper, you can run (which you did), and you can hide (which you did), but not forever.
Federal government documents on Afghan detainees suggest that Canadian officials intended some prisoners to be tortured in order to gather intelligence, according to a legal expert.

If the allegation is true, such actions would constitute a war crime, said University of Ottawa law professor Amir Attaran, who has been digging deep into the issue and told CBC News he has seen uncensored versions of government documents released last year.

"If these documents were released [in full], what they will show is that Canada partnered deliberately with the torturers in Afghanistan for the interrogation of detainees," he said.

"There would be a question of rendition and a question of war crimes on the part of certain Canadian officials. That's what's in these documents, and that's why the government is covering up as hard as it can."

I don't usually just regurgitate news stories without comment but my anger at this government has to go somewhere.

ignatieff: "while we deplore the immoral and disgusting actions of mr. harper, he copulated with the decaying body for only 10 minutes. the liberal party does not feel that was sufficient to warrant putting canadians through an election process they do not want. i am, however, putting mr. harper on notice that any further necrophilia will force me to call another press conference."
