Do the right thing

This military inquiry into the handling of detainees in Afghanistan should act on its own initiative - irrespective of the flagging leadership on this file - to expand its investigation into ensuring that the new agreement entered into with the Afghan government is being properly executed. Period. If they have the ability to seek to expand their mandate, they should do the right thing and not leave us with a half-baked report. With all due respect, exercise some common sense.

Maybe someone eyeing a political future might want to think about that...
