I'm assuming the information she referenced originally came from our government.

I'll need to see a forensic audit of everything the government has on file before I come to any conclusion about it.

oh really? And this is you... not concluding?

As for reputable journalism, misinformation and Canada's involvement in Afghanistan let's start from before day 1... apparently we went there because Afghanistan is where the terrorists of 9/11 were trained. Lol...

1st of all there wasn't a single Afghan on board any of the planes used as weapons that day and the flight simulators they trained on were in the US not some cave in Afghanistan.

Oh well, I  guess you'll always be stuck between a rock and a stupid place surrounding our country's performance given it was the Liberals that let themselves drag us into this mess.

way to misinform bro! The Taliban harbouring terrorist groups in Afghanistan (like al-Qaeda... (and various leaders of al-Qaeda, like bin Laden)) was well understood before 9/11. I've never read any reputable source claim the 9/11 terrorists were, as you state, "trained in Afghanistan". There is no disputing that the nineteen 9/11 terrorists were members of al-Qaeda... and that they were led by bin Laden.

as for your perpetual want to forevah slag the Liberal Party... and your claim that, "Canada was dragged into the mess by Liberals", let the waldo clear up your misunderstanding, end your misinformation:

waldo factoids:
=> shortly after the 9/11 attack NATO, following its underlying principle of collective defence, invoked Article 5 (the only time it has ever been invoked to-date) - you know, that lil' ditty that states, that an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies.
=> it was the U.S. and U.K. that initially bombed the Taliban & al Qaeda throughout Afghanistan
=> it was the UN with a progression of 3 Security Council Resolutions interspersed with the Bonn Conference and a retreating Taliban that set the beginnings of ISAF (International Security Assistance Force)... with full command of ISAF ultimately assumed by NATO

with your phrasing, "the Liberals that let themselves drag us into this mess", I'm shocked you would favour rogue nation positioning for Canada over Canada working within the engagement of and under the auspices of the UN and NATO sanctioning - shocked, I tells ya!
