Harper continues to put the troops out in front

Harper continues to mischaracterize the opposition's questions on the Afghan torture allegations. Here's a quote from him in Question Period today:
"'Unlike the members opposite, we don't automatically assume any allegations made by the Taliban against the Canadian Forces are the unbiased truth,' Harper fired at the opposition."
The "Taliban" are not making allegations against the Canadian Forces, from what I've seen. The allegations are that Afghan prisoners are being tortured in Afghan prisons. Not by Canadian Forces, as Harper's comment suggests.
