Via Impolitical, we learn that newly-minted CPoC spokesasshole Kory Teneycke is, well, an asshole:
“This is the process the Liberals chose, and we're sticking with it,” Mr. Teneycke said in an interview Sunday. Accusing the opposition of “playing politics,” he said recent public revelations about the Khadr file should have been known to the previous government. "This information was in their hands when they made these decisions," he said.
They had all the relevant information, did they, Kory, you sleazy little douchebag? Here, let me enlighten you on just two eyebrow-raising revelations that came out only this year and that we covered here at CC HQ regarding Omar Khadr.
First, there's this from February:
... in an interview with The Nation in February after the six Guantánamo detainees were charged, [Col. Morris] Davis offered the most damning evidence of the military commissions' bias--a revelation that speaks to fundamental flaws in the Bush Administration's conduct of statecraft: its contempt for the rule of law and its pursuit of political objectives above all else.
When asked if he thought the men at Guantánamo could receive a fair trial, Davis provided the following account of an August 2005 meeting he had with Pentagon general counsel William Haynes--the man who now oversees the tribunal process for the Defense Department.
"[Haynes] said these trials will be the Nuremberg of our time," recalled Davis, referring to the Nazi tribunals in 1945, considered the model of procedural rights in the prosecution of war crimes. In response, Davis said he noted that at Nuremberg there had been some acquittals, which had lent great credibility to the proceedings.
"I said to him that if we come up short and there are some acquittals in our cases, it will at least validate the process," Davis continued. "At which point, [Haynes's] eyes got wide and he said, 'Wait a minute, we can't have acquittals. If we've been holding these guys for so long, how can we explain letting them get off? We can't have acquittals. We've got to have convictions.'"
And then there's this from just last month:
Lawyer: Khadr report altered
GUANTANAMO, Cuba–A U.S. military commander altered a report on a firefight in Afghanistan to cast blame for the death of a Delta Force commando on a Canadian youth who was captured after the shooting stopped, a defence lawyer said today...
The military commander’s official report the day after the raid originally said the assailant who threw the grenade was killed, which would rule out Khadr as the suspect.
The report was revised months later, under the same date, to say a U.S. fighter had only “engaged” the assailant, according to Kuebler, who said the later version was presented to him by prosecutors as an “updated” document.
Kuebler told reporters after the hearing that it appears “the government manufactured evidence to make it look like Omar was guilty.”
And guess what, Kory? It doesn't appear that the Liberals were aware of either of these things. Now don't you feel like a complete asswipe, Kory?
