In other “news”

by

Post, Star, CTV and CBC are all making prominent mention at this hour of the Prime Minister’s comments, broadcast on CNN today, that the Afghan insurgency cannot be defeated.

The significance of those comments aside, note that the Prime Minister was broadcast saying the exact same thing on the exact same American news network ten days ago.

(Granted, Ottawa was rather preoccupied that day. But then the Prime Minister’s observation was rebroadcast two days later as part of a full interview with Wolf Blitzer on Feb. 21.)
