Mr. Speaker, I would remind the House that this telephone conversation took place on September 26, 2006.
The Minister of National Defence does not want to come clean about the situation with the Afghan detainees. We know for a fact, thanks to a tip, that four detainees disappeared after we transferred them to the Afghan National Army. We arrested them because of the threat they posed to our troops and the Afghan people. Now they are back in the field against us because there is no or not enough monitoring.
I look the former arms' dealer straight in the eyes. Why will he not tell us what is really going on in Afghanistan?
