Oh, for the love of mutt:
Meharchand: "You know, we could digress here and talk about who's handing over, is it the Canadian soldiers who you're accusing of war crimes, is it the government, I don't want to go there in this interview."
That would be the CBC's Suhana Meharchand, asking an on-topic and explosive question, then in the same breath telling John McCallum she doesn't want an answer. If there's any way she could have been more appalling and pathetic as an interviewer, it doesn't come to mind at the moment.
BY THE WAY, if Canada's troops on the ground handed over prisoners knowing there was a good chance they'd be tortured, then of course they're war criminals. I honestly don't see the problem here.
Transferring detainees when there is a substantial risk they will be abused or tortured is a war crime. If you handed over prisoners under those circumstances and with that knowledge, then you're a war criminal.
Where exactly does that logic break down?
