Afghan detainees tortured in Afghanistan! Now there’s an earth-shattering revelation. But poor Richard Colvin, the senior diplomat who blew the whistle. The Harperites are more or less saying he’s in bed with the Taliban. Classy. And Colvin will settle out of court for how much? Memo to the government: tell the truth. Of course there’s a very good chance prisoners were tortured. It’s Afghanistan. But it doesn’t mean it’s OUR fault. Doesn’t mean a damn thing! But smearing a senior diplomat, accusing him of being a ” patsy ” to the Taliban. Makes one wonder who the dupe really is.
