Rick Hillier has said he will no longer release any information about Afghan prisoners taken by Canadian soldiers. Previous released information showed that everything wasn't all sweetness and light for Afghan prisoners captured and held in their own country by armed forces of invading countries.
Hillier says that this is to protect Canadian soldiers. This, of course, is a gigantic pile of garbage.
To keep whatever little support for this "mission" there still is, it is necessary to keep the truth from Canadians.
Where are dignified, compassionate soldiers like John de Chastelain and Roméo Dallaire when you need them? How did we end up with this as the head of our armed forces?
