An interesting article in today's Gazette on "Canada getting Obama's attention". When factoring in Gates asking for us to extend the mission in Afghanistan past 2011 it comes as no surprise. Makes me wonder if the Cons are, as usual, lying.
"But if Ottawa has any hope of getting the ear of the world's most popular politician, it will have to think big and act even bigger. And that means dumping plans for the large-scale withdrawal of Canadian Forces from Afghanistan in 2011.
That was the underlying message this past week when dozens of senior bureaucrats, diplomats and analysts from Canada and the U.S. met in Ottawa to discuss a "blueprint" for getting the Canadian government on the radar of the incoming Obama administration."
