L I N K These could be the last days of Peter MacKay. Canada’s top General, Walter Natynczyk, essentially discounted the official line on Richard Colvin’s allegations and the Canadian government’s statements regarding their knowledge of treatment of Afghan prisoners.
“Either his credibility is in tatters, or he is not competent to hold the job.
On top of it all, as the truth about the Afghan detainee issue continues to leak out, MacKay’s recent savaging of diplomatic whistleblower Richard Colvin becomes more reprehensible by the day.”
That pretty much sums it up. Long time diplomats don’t blow whistles frivolously. It should be interesting to see if Mr. Harper comes to Mr. MacKay’s side or jettisons him; especially with a rumored cabinet shuffle on the horizon.
