Lawrence Cannon, unplugged and disconnected

At a "media availability" he called this morning, Taliban Larry was blindsided with questions on the publication of the Wikileaks war logs. Echoing U.S. National Security Adviser James Jones, Cannon said :

"Our government is concerned obviously that operational leaks could endanger the lives of our men and women in Afghanistan."
Cannon then went on to repeat several times that the "leaked American documents" have "nothing to do with Canada."

Ok then.

Asked by the G&M if the leaks indicate the government has "misled the Canadian public", Lawrence replied that they have been very "transparent" and besides, ministers regularly go before the parliamentary Afghanistan committee.

Ahem. Didn't your government just shut down parliament entirely earlier this year in part to stop that very committee from doing its job, Larry? Is this Afgan committee not the very place from which the word "redacted" assumed its prominant position in the news ?

Meanwhile, over at the Pentagon ...
Pentagon still reviewing records, but so far finds no threat to U.S. security
"An ongoing Pentagon review of the massive flood of secret documents made public by the WikiLeaks website has so far found no evidence that the disclosure harmed U.S. national security or endangered American troops in the field, a Pentagon official told NBC News on Monday."

LOL I don't really think he wants to cite 'Secret Treaties' with the US and UK which bind us to support the SOBs on both sides of the Atlantic who give us poor peons our 'marching orders': including those inconvenient and never mentioned 'Bilateral Immunity Agreements.'( Law in Topical Index )
Check the intelligence sharing article to see what was held over the heads of Whitehall and Ottawa both.
Best quip so far was that this gives the Obamanator 'cover' for the preplanned withdrawals from AfPakIraq.Unmentioned was having strewn Depleted Uranium hither and yon and given armed Predator drones a field trial.

Cannon's lies are so clumsy and stupid.

Asshole should be made to clean highway rib-house grease traps with a toothbrush for the rest of his life.
