"I have not contradicted anybody," said Gen. Hillier, who had just returned from an unexpected visit to the battlefields of Kandahar province.It's not his job to see things exactly the same way as the PM. And we'll see, but it's possible he might have a different PM in a year's time. With a different Afghan policy. But he's publicly committed, as the nation's top military guy, to seeing things exactly the same way as the Conservatives. Not good.
"The last time I saw the Prime Minister was the night from the Speech from the Throne and we had a conversation about a whole variety of things. I'm very clear on where the direction comes from. ... We're on exactly the same page and I believe actually we see things exactly the same way." (emphasis added)
A politicized military is not what we need in this country.
The Conservatives' desperate desire for Quebec votes is blinding them to the correct paths that they should be walking on so many issues.
