All Canadians owe a debt of gratitude to Christie Blatchford, of the Globe and Mail as she took the time from her busy schedule to read all of Richard Colvin’s emails (that have been forbidden to our paid elected Members of Parliament) and was able to conclude (despite the selective natiue of the emails that she received and the heavily redacted nature of these emails, that, low and behold, the Harper government is right and Richard Colvin is wrong? Evidently there is no need for a public inquiry according to Christie Blatchford and the Globe and Mail. To which I posted the following comment. This SO REMINDS me of the Globe’s grossly biased and nonsensical repetition of the Harper government’s lies about tax leakage and confirms the Globe and Mail as being Canada’s answer to Pravda:

This article by Christie Baltchford is spurious nonsense in the extreme and a blatant attempt to manipulate the public record.
Whatever Christie Blatchford has in her possession is what her source wanted her to have...namely a subset of all of the available facts.
What nonsense! How can Christie Blatchford and the Globe be so easily manipulated and be so naive as to "run" with this story?
This Afghan detainee issue can only be properly dealt with if ALL THE FACTS are on the table, and not that subset of facts that had gone through somebody's "filter".
I have the same concern about the "filter" that Harper and MacKay keep citing when they say they will release the documents, and refer to the "legally permissible" documents.
Just what does that even mean and just who exactly will be making that determination?
Enough is enough. Let's start with all the facts and begin at the beginning and not begin at the end, namely an end that is being forced upon us through manipulation and which is being defined by certain people's preferred political scenario, rather than by the facts.
