pseudochretien is a despicable person. He is now sucking up to the chinese commies on behalf of his in laws. His in laws must be very upset that they no longer control the government of Canada.
I knew that there were Canadian soldiers ( mostly intelligence and communications officers) in Iraq, but it seems we offered the Americans even more. Why anyone ever trusted the libranos is beyond me. The shawinigan strangler did a lot of damage to US Canada relations as did his mentor trudeau before him. It's good thing that grit lies and hypocrisy are now exposed for all to see. Perhaps there were be some disenchanted grit who will finally expose the libranos and tell us where that $41 million from adscam is. I can always hope.
The same day Canada publicly refused to join the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, a high-ranking Canadian official was secretly promising the Americans clandestine military support for the fiercely controversial operation.
The revelation that Canadian forces may have secretly participated in the invasion of Iraq is contained in a classified U.S. diplomatic memo obtained exclusively by CBC News from the whistleblower website WikiLeaks.
On March 17, 2003, two days before U.S. warplanes launched their attack on Baghdad, prime minister Jean Chrétien told the House of Commons that Canadian forces would not be joining what the administration of then U.S. president George W. Bush dubbed the "coalition of the willing."
Chrétien's apparent refusal to back the Bush administration's invasion, purportedly launched to seize weapons of mass destruction possessed by Iraqi ruler Saddam Hussein (which were never found), was hugely popular in Canada, widely hailed as nothing less than a defining moment of national sovereignty.
But even as Chrétien told the Commons that Canada wouldn't participate in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Canadian diplomats were secretly telling their U.S. counterparts something entirely different.
