Stephen Harper: Supporting the Troops AND Endangering Them
He likes to turn everything into just another big photo-op. He likes to pose as a Great Warrior Leader.
He likes to run pictures of himself and our soldiers, to prove he supports our troops.
Even if he endangers them.
The Prime Minister’s Office has admitted to a major security breach in promoting Stephen Harper’s recent tour of Iraq and Kuwait after it posted two videos to the Internet that may have exposed Canadian soldiers’ identities and made them vulnerable to attack.
He likes to lie.
It’s a complete reversal for the PMO, which earlier Tuesday insisted that it violated no security rules when it published PR videos that included the faces of Canadian military personnel on duty in both countries.
Until he's forced to tell the truth about his porky photo-op.
“After a second review, it became apparent that two of the videos should not have been posted,” Rob Nicol, director of communications for Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a statement.
The PMO yanked the “24/7” videos from the Internet early Tuesday morning after concerns were raised about whether the Conservative video-makers had left Canadian soldiers vulnerable to being targeted by terror groups such as Islamic State.
And to make matters worse, it's not the first time the Cons have put their propaganda before the safety of our troops.
The Department of National Defence and its new minister, Jason Kenney, are facing harsh criticism after sharing photos of Canadian special forces members from the ramp ceremony in Erbil, Iraq, on Sunday honouring Sgt. Andrew Doiron.
Which is as I have pointed out before, the same as they are doing to the rest of us...
Claiming they are making our lives safer, while actually making our lives more dangerous.
And of course Tom Mulcair is right:
Official Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair called the incident "a further example of Stephen Harper using this war for political purposes."
And the only question that needs to be determined is when can we make all our lives safer?
By getting rid of these dangerous Con clowns...
