Afghan operation Sajjan tried to take credit for was a failure, according to U.S military investigation

As opposition politicians continue to hammer Canada’s defence minister for trying to claim credit as “the architect” of a major Afghan war operation, some in and out of uniform are questioning why anyone would want to have what, is arguably, a dubious honour.

In some military circles, the 2006 Canadian-led Operation Medusa is seen as a failure.

    If it had been a Conservative, not only would have have been forced to resign by now, but also their children and grandchildren would have been forced to resign, from whatever it was they were doing.

    It seems our Reduced Defence Minister makes lying a habit. Now all of a sudden he can’t make a veteran’s dinner because of a schedule conflict. I heard a rumour that he is leading the charge at the battle of Gettysburg.

      Don’t put down Sajjan for taking credit for a military operation that was a failure.

      If you were part of the Trudeau Cabinet, wouldn’t want to take credit for such a failure? It would have to be less of a failure than any Liberal policy they have enacted so far.

        Come on; if it was a failure, then it was a success by their standards. Remember, if we kill the enemy, then we lose.

    • What? Did he have a meeting with the truth?

  • FactsWillOut

    The fact is, the entire NATO operation in Afghanistan was a failure, just like it was in Libya, Kosovo, just like it is in Syria…

  • So why would he take credit for it?

    A liar and a fool.

    From all reports, Sajjan was a good soldier. If this is true, we have to conclude that his entry into politics and, particularly, Liberal politics is what has done him in. He probably absorbed by osmosis his boss’ narcissism and vacuity.
