PMO pulls Iraq, Kuwait videos from website over fears of vibrant multicultural reaction here at home

The Prime Minister’s Office has removed two videos from its own website over fears they may have broken the ground rules laid out by the military during Stephen Harper’s visit to Iraq and Kuwait.

The videos were shot in Iraq and Kuwait by 24/7, the prime minister’s in-house media team, which specializes in producing flattering features about Harper and his government.

One video is an interview with Defence Minister Jason Kenney shot after Harper’s speech to Canadian military personnel based in Kuwait. The second is of Harper’s trip to the front lines in Northern Iraq.

    I didn’t see any indication of the truth of the headline indicated in the whiny CBC “news” report.

    • It’s alluded to here, in the mention of forces family members…

      “The Canadian military required journalists sign an agreement to that effect upon their arrival in Kuwait. Journalists were repeatedly warned if they showed the faces of military members, they could expose those members or their families to retaliation by the militant group ISIS, the jihadist group Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.”

        My apologies. I thought the headline meant e.g. CAIR was complaining about it leading to a “backlash” and not CF families worried about retaliation against them.

    How about that. Pam Geller has more balls than the entire Canadian Army combined.

      Apparently you still are unable to keep up with the news; and your ability to make or understand distinctions remains severely atrophied.

        Note the veiled ad-hom without any refutation of my comment. A tactic typical of the left.
        Well done, Minimoe.

          There was nothing to refute. And I was pointing out your general lack of comprehension which is the foundation of your comments.

          Cheers

            Usually, I only get downvotes from the goatfucker brigade. You keep good company.
