Any Chance We Could Hire Gen David Patreus?

Gen Rick Hillier is being replaced, according to this story from CTV. I thought that he would have been kept on as Chief Of Defence Staff, but somebody high up apparently knows something I don't. Whatever it is, I hope they keep it to themselves. This man has served his country and continues to do so. The only ones who should celebrate the news of his departure I think would be the Taliban.

'But observers say the government seems determined to get rid of the charismatic general'

Those ever reliable OBSERVERS, what would we do without them and 'unnamed sources' ?

New Minister, new focus with the mission, new Commander.

As with all previous commitments from Canada's military, I thought they always had a perfect focus: WIN.
