Bev Oda yukking it up with Kandahar Governor

Bev Oda was in Afghanistan this week. Palling around with the Kandahar Governor Khalid who has been allegedly personally involved in torture of prisoners. It made for quite the video, here. Watch as Bev and Khalid laugh and make nice. As the Canadian Press described it:
Kandahar Gov. Asadullah Khalid shared a laugh with the ambassador, snipped a pink ribbon alongside a cabinet minister and showered Canada with praise Tuesday to demonstrate he holds no ill will toward the country that let slip it was seeking his ouster.
Oh yes, Khalid loves Canada and Maxime Bernier. Bernier's guaranteed him a job.

How embarrassing that Canada is now in this position, to suck up to Khalid who was well on his way out until Bernier's incompetent gaffe last week, broadcasting quiet diplomatic efforts to remove the Governor. Khalid, who spent the weekend denigrating Canadian Forces.

Oh yeah, he's a super guy we've entrenched in Kandahar.
