Once upon a time, it was delicious fun to slag Jack Layton. Oh, my ... how times have changed:
Canada reaches out to Taliban
After years of refusing to negotiate with insurgents, soldiers in Kandahar put word out they want to talk
KHENJAKAK, AFGHANISTAN — Canadian troops are reaching out to the Taliban for the first time, military and diplomatic officials say, as Canada softens its ban on speaking with the insurgents.
After years of rejecting any contact with the insurgents, Canadian officials say those involved with the mission are now rethinking the policy in hopes of helping peace efforts led by the Afghan government.
This would normally call for at least a few minutes of embarrassed and shameful silence. If those people had any shame. Or ever shut the fuck up.
