Is that your final answer, Pete?

I know nuthink! OK, I lied:

Tories heard Afghan prison concerns soon after taking office in '06: MacKay

By Bruce Cheadle (CP) – 2 days ago

OTTAWA — The Conservative government now says it was aware of "concerns about the state of prisons" in Afghanistan almost from the day it took office and eventually rewrote a prisoner transfer agreement as those concerns mounted.

Defence Minister Peter MacKay offered a dramatically different Tory narrative on the Afghan torture issue on Friday. This capped a week in which the government went from lampooning as Taliban "dupes" anyone who alleged prisoner abuse to claiming the government took such reports seriously from the start.

Join us tomorrow when Peter MacKay ... oh, fuck it, he's just going to make up some new shit.
