Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Canada can’t get its story straight when it comes to Syria.
Chief of the Defence Staff Gen. Tom Lawson has done an abrupt about-face and is admitting that advanced precision-guided munitions were indeed used in Syria by Canada’s allies, despite claims to the contrary made by Defence Minister Jason Kenney.
In justifying Canada’s entry into the war, Kenney recently claimed that Canada and the U.S. were the only members of the Syrian coalition who had smart bombs.
But an article last week in the Citizen noted that the minister was wrong, as both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, part of the current five country U.S.-led coalition bombing targets in Syria, have smart weapons and have already used them against Islamic extremists.
Kenney then found himself under attack from opposition MPs who accused him of misleading Canadians about the new mission against Islamic extremists in Syria.
Kenney’s staff mobilized a response to the Citizen article and on the weekend Lawson published a letter on the Department of National Defence website, criticizing the newspaper’s article and claiming that only Canada and the U.S. had advanced smart bombs.
And then he said…
Kenney also took to Twitter to denounce what he called a “misleading” Citizen article, citing the claims made in Lawson’s letter as proof he was right.
Kenney, under fire in the Commons Monday, also pointed to Lawson’s letter. “The statement of the Chief of the Defence Staff confirmed what I said,” Kenney pointed out to the NDP.
No, not Twitter, anything but that!!!
Kenney’s office did not respond Tuesday night.
