Canada’s military acted on Afghan abuses, once the media blew the whistle: Editorial | Toronto Star:
It took far too long to make this public. The probe was launched back in 2008 after a frontline soldier told the Star about evidence of abuse, saying he had seen a boy who had been severely injured in a rape. A report by a military board of inquiry was completed in 2010. But it was only revealed on Tuesday — six years after being finished, and two years after the end of Canada’s mission.
