Tipping point?

Two items on the Afghan detainee situation here, a CBC video report on Wednesday's big testimony at the Military Police Complaints Commission, focussing on the translator in particular, with his startling allegations.

There's also this column that's worth a read, on this week being a tipping point in this file: "Afghanistan: Who are the heroes here?" Whether it's a tipping point, good question. Watching Question Period yesterday, Peter MacKay's frivolous responses to serious opposition questioning about Wednesday's testimony did seem to ring very hollow.

An eventful week as we await that anticipated Speaker's ruling on the government's breach of privilege.
