...screeches Opposition parties... too many facts may spoil the nasty, blood-soaked narrative...
A high-ranking Canadian diplomat is jetting back from a Beijing posting to defend his record against allegations that Canada transferred prisoners to certain torture in Afghanistan – but opposition parties may not let him testify.Funny how that works, huh?
David Mulroney, currently Canada's ambassador to China, served as the government's point man and chief fixer on Afghanistan until May.
He was singled out by Canadian diplomat Richard Colvin during explosive testimony last week as one of the senior officials who tried to contain and suppress his warnings about the torture of Afghan detainees in 2006 and early 2007.
