Harper Government 'Flips' Then 'Flops' On Afghan Prisoner Fiasco

OTTAWA (CP) - The Conservative government's erratic response to allegations of Afghan prisoner abuse took another sharp turn Thursday.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper appeared to contradict his Defence Minister by telling the House of Commons that there is no formal agreement with Afghanistan about access to detainees handed over by Canadian troops. A day earlier, Defence Minister Gordon O'Connor told the Commons foreign affairs committee that a deal had been struck to allow Canadian officials to check on the treatment of captured insurgents "any time they wanted."

Harper then denied there was any problem at all.

At that point Stockwell Day got involved. The Public Safety Minister then stunned the Opposition parties by saying corrections officers have always had access to Afghan detainees after they have been transferred to Afghan officials.

galloping Beaver suggests that Day said, Corrections Canada has access to facilities not to detainees as they are not there to monitor them.
He said that hoping nobody would call him on it. Just a little white lie, but they get another crack at him tomorrow, and need to ask them what they have access to.

I thought it was appropriate to show a photo of Harper - Day - O'Connor as they prepare for Question Period.

Wait a minute... Harper- Day- and O'Connor are dead ringers for Bush, Cheney, and Gonzales!!!!


Hey Dawg!! I thought it was a pic of Bush, Cheney and Rove.
