I have been blogging for nearly a year now, and it was not until recently that I took an interest in the Liblogs. A "blogging expert" on the Soloman Show cited their outrage at "torturegate" as evidence that they must be right, so I decided to delve a little deeper. They are hammering away at torturegate every day, either because they think that they can make these allegations stick, or because they have no other fecal matter to sling at the Tories. Some of them are shaken up that they have ceded the "Harper Sales Tax" as an election wedge issue.
What really stands out if you read what these people are writing, which I have been, is that they make no mention whatsoever about the Martin Government initiating the prisoner transfer agreement, and zero about Colvin saying the torture was rampant when he arrived shortly after the Conservatives defeated the Liberals in 2006. Ergo, if Colvin is credible and accurate, the previous Liberal Government committed war crimes. Any mention of that? None. The silence is deafening. In what can only described as a massive concurrent case of selective collective amnesia, the Liberal pundits are accusing the soldiers that their own administration sent into Kandahar of committing war crimes under the Liberal watch; and are outraged that the Tories did not clean up the Liberal mess soon enough.
I would encourage other Blogging Tories to check out some of these Liberal sites for story ideas. There is a goldmine of counter-punch material to inspire and muse your mind! Check out this Progressive Nut who wants to end Christmas. I'll tell you, some of these left wing opinionists belong in an insane asylum.
