Nothing To See Here, Move Along


OK kiddies, it's experiment time. Your mission: visit the Government of Canada website and time how long it takes you to find a mission statement about the war in Afghanistan.

Ready? Go!

...alright, I know it's Monday and this is a lot to ask, so let me save you some time. On the front page, there is nothing about Afghanistan. No links to any information. There is a big banner inviting you to join up with the military, but it's not clear why.

After trying a search for the words 'Afghan mission', this is what came up. No mission statement, no explanation of what the fuck we're doing there. Another search for 'Harper Afghanistan' reveals a little more info, with links to Harper speeches concerning Afghanistan, but again no mission statement.

Why is the government making it so difficult to find clarification on the war? Maybe because there is none.
