CSIS in Afghanistan (II)

by

Defence Minister Peter MacKay comments on the involvement of CSIS in Afghanistan.

“Officials from the Department of Public Safety (which includes CSIS) clearly do play an important role depending on what particular Taliban prisoners may have to say, what information is being sought, and clearly it’s in all our interests to have accurate information as we attempt to protect people – which is what we’re there to do,” he said in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince.
