Canadian NATO troops get new U.S. leader

U.S. Maj.-Gen. James Terry takes over from Brit


Beginning today, 2,800 Canadian troops in Kandahar, Afghanistan, get a new NATO commander. U.S. Maj.-Gen. James Terry has taken over from British Maj.-Gen. Nick Carter and is assuming command of all NATO forces in southern Afghanistan. Canadians have played a central role in Carter’s operation this summer, to secure the Kandahar province, by moving against insurgents in Kandahar’s Panjwaii district.
