The Blogging Tories' Raphael Alexander points out how Stephane Dion is pretty much screwed, no matter what:
... why are the Liberals standing on the podium crying about "stains" on Democracy when they've known about it for two weeks, and why has Peter MacKay accused Dion of being 'irresponsible' about speaking about the issue?
So Dion will be attacked for remaining silent on what he knew for that last two weeks while, on the other hand, he will conversely be vilified for irresponsibly speaking out on the subject.
And the Blogging Tories' response will be, "Um, yeah, I don't see a problem here."
AFTERSNARK: In the comments section there, one "wilson" sadly demonstrates just how much of a misinformed imbecile someone can possibly be:
PMSH and Conservatives are still 'no comment on military operations', while Dion is telling all, in detail (he said, and then I said) to any media that will listen.
I don't know why the military swore all those privy to the detainee info, into secrecy. That was a military, not political decision.
To which one can only plead with "wilson" to go read Dave's take on the issue so that he not remain this depressingly ignorant all his life.
Yeah, that'll happen. When pigs fly out of my butt, that'll happen.
DOUBLE PLUS GOOD AFTERSNARK: Apparently, Stephen Harper and the Harperoids have pissed off a few people. People with guns. That's generally a bad idea.
THE LAST WORD: Read this. Then this. Case closed.
