Curiouser and curiouser

Or perhaps in the case of Sansterre, not curious at all.  The Globe and Mail has a blisteringly spot-on editorial in today’s edition.  We recommend that you read the whole thing, but here’s a teaser:

Lieutenant-Colonel Gilles Sansterre is the investigator who appears to know very little, or to want to. The commander of the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service claimed he had never read the human-rights reports on Afghanistan written by the United States State Department, or by the United Nations or the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission. He had never read a 2008 ruling of the Federal Court of Canada that accepted the serious torture concerns of those agencies. Afghanistan? A very nice country, as far as Lt.-Col. Sansterre could tell.
