Conservative government guilty of Torture War Crimes

CANADA - A huge expose released today by CBC news revealed the Canadian government knowingly committed war crimes in handing over detainees to be tortured by Afghan officials hoping to gain intelligence.

Torture has been a war crime since the 1949 Geneva Conventions.

The Canadian Defence Minister Peter MacKay, famous for his many repeated visits to Afghanistan to speak with Afghan officials, was in charge of the scandal and what is essentially "outsourcing torture".

If convicted of this war crime Peter MacKay and any other members of Conservative Party of Canada who were involved will be the first Canadian politicians ever found guilty of a war crime.

The Conservative Party is currently fighting to prevent official documents from being released to the public, the same documents Prime Minister Stephen Harper prorogued parliament in an effort to prevent their release and in hopes that the scandal might go away. This suggests that the corruption goes all the way to the Prime Minister's office.

Opposition parties are demanding a public inquiry into the war crimes and who was involved. The Conservative Party is currently in damage control mode and trying to cover up the full extent of government involvement. Political pundits are already guessing as to when an election might be called.
