No Problem. So Can He Help Canada In Afghanistan?

[LA Times] Key won’t be among them. He was trained as a combat engineer and spent eight months in Iraq kicking down doors in house-to-house searches for terrorists. He says that he fled to Canada with his wife and children after he told a military lawyer his qualms about what he believed were human rights abuses by U.S. forces, and that he was told his choices were to return to Iraq or go to prison. The judge ruled that Key need not have witnessed war crimes to qualify for asylum. Rather, “officially condoned military misconduct falling well short of a war crime may support a claim to refugee protection.”

The rest.
