Spying On The Spymaster

There are only three ways to look at CSIS director Richard Fadden’s statements:

1. He has blown the cover off active investigations conducted by agents in the field. In that case, he must be fired for misconduct.

2. He’s undertaken a rogue investigation that is to smear potential opponents, in provincial political parties, to the Harper regime. In that case, he must be fired for allowing the national security agency to become the research wing of the Conservative Party of Canada.

3. He’s a real-life General Ripper.
