"Sarge! Sarge! That guy we brought in last month? That we turned over to the Afghanis? Turns out he's the number two guy in the Taliban! We need him back here right now! Where is he!?!?"
Detainee transfer documents buried in Canadian military shipping containers
OTTAWA — Records of Afghan detainee transfer orders showing whether Canadian military commanders took the risk of torture into account are buried in sea shipping containers and "may take years" to locate, the Military Police Complaints Commission was told Tuesday.
The revelation by Maj. Denis Gagnon emerged when he was closely questioned by lawyer Paul Champ, who said the commission is on the verge of deciding whether it has to suspend public hearings, partly because of missing and delayed documents from the Defence Department.
Gagnon said the documents are "all thrown together in a storage bin, a sea container" and an assessment of how long it would take to catalogue documents and identify the records requested by the commission may take years.
That growing laughter you hear is the rest of NATO pointing at Canada and peeing in their pants.
P.S. And the Taliban, too. I'm betting they're howling so hard, they just ruptured something.
NOW THAT'S FUNNY: Over at Blogging Tory Victor's place, commenter "Marlin Spike" demonstrates an impeccable sense of timing:
The only people who should get this information are those who have qualified for a Level III or TSSA (Top Secret Special Access) security clearance. The only one on the committee that fits that requirement is probably Laurie Hawn due to his previous life as a Senior Officer in the CF. National Security is not a toy. Incredible, and irreparable damage can be done to a Nation, its Security Forces, and Individuals if Highly CLASSIFIED information is not properly safeguarded. I do not trust non-trained elected members (particularly non-Govt ones to “Get It” when it comes to material like this.
At what point do you simply become a parody of a human being?
