Mission accomplished?

The governor of Kandahar questions Stephen Harper’s contention that “Afghanistan is no longer a threat to the world.”

“Maybe…Mr. Harper is an optimistic man, and I am also an optimistic man, but we shouldn’t be that confident, because the Afghan situation is pretty delicate,” Tooryalai Wesa told Embassy in an interview in Montreal during the Internal Economic Forum of the Americas on June 8. “I don’t know him closely, but this is—from my perspective—a bit of an optimistic statement at this time of Afghanistan’s situation.”
