Over the last few years, we may have given readers the idea that Canada's presence in Afghanistan was illegitimate, ill-advised, an example of the warmongering policies of GW Steven Busharper and generally a Very Bad Thing. Headlines such as "Bring Them Home" and "End Harper's War Now" may have mistakenly conveyed this impression.
We now recognize that Canada is engaged in important work, that the Afghan mission is not complete and that to desert the Afghans in 2011 would just be another cowardly Tory government decision made for political expediency.
We apologize for any confusion.
