Leaders drop the ball
Khadr family values
They stood up to al Qaeda and to the Taliban in Afghanistan. Now they're standing up to the Canadian government - or so the story goes. The Khadrs, Canada's "first family of terrorism" for its alleged ties to Osama bin Laden - the family admits to the occasional game of volleyball with the 9/11 mastermind back in Afghanistan - have launched their own website (thekhadrlegacy.com). It's all "to fight back at the rumours and tell politicians that we are not going to be their bogeyman any longer."
The Khadrs tackle a number of questions, including: Doesn't your family hate Canada? The answer offered by the Khadrs is one that may resonate with other Canadians - that we have simply lost our way.
Bushie comes calling
Irony or bad karma that Karl Rove, Bush's former master of disaster and architect of two of the dirtiest elections in U.S. history, will be making an appearance at a $700-a-plate fete for the Fraser Institute September 23, right in the middle of our own runoff? Wonder if Harper will be in the audience taking notes when Rove offers his pearls of wisdom. As if he needs lessons in filthy electioneering.
