Leading CTV to speculate;
Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Rick Hillier is expected to be replaced as top military commander when his three-year term expires in February, Conservative insiders have told CTV.
The PMO does not have leaks except controlled ones. This could be seen as the PMO engaging in the politics of the 'stab in the back'.
The Harpocrites will pretend they were they ticked at their pal for hanging the old man out to dry.
In reality it shows that the Harpocrites have boxed themselves in with Hillier's War and the only way to extradite Harper from the war is to fire err retire the warmonger general. Making him the scapegoat for the Kandahar operation.
All their pleas to the UN and NATO have fallen on deaf ears. They know they cannot win an extension for Harpers War from Parliament. And they know it is hurting them in the polls, especially in Quebec.
Besides there is only room for one Autocrat to be in charge, and so Hillier has to go.
