Sandra Buckler: All lies, all the time.

I realize it's just piling on, but you have to chuckle over this snippet from the G&M:

When asked why the government withheld information from the public, from Parliament, and from the blue-ribbon panel hired to chart Canada's future policy in Afghanistan, Ms. Buckler said the Canadian Forces had kept it secret.

Ms. Buckler's statement provoked outrage within her own government and particularly infuriated military officials.

Some news organizations gave little prominence to her remarks because they simply assumed them to be untrue.

In short, some news organizations have openly given up on expecting the truth from Buckler. And when that happens, your life span as a "spokesperson" is generally measured in days.
