Discovery by the CBC of a 2-year old “racially-charged” video clip that makes fun of Muslim terrorists has forced the Canadian military to divert its attention away from important matters like national defense to launch a formal investigation.
CBC (H/T Don L) The ‘insensitive; video features an unidentified member of Canadian Forces in brown makeup and wearing a turban, pretending to be Osama bin Laden’s brother. The video was produced for a formal dinner on the base in January 2010, a time when Afghanistan was still a combat mission for Canada and there were about 2,800 Canadian military personnel serving there. In a four-minute excerpt, the bin Laden character jokingly boasts of working directly for his brother. (Videos work, click arrow)
Watch the CBC commies get their panties in a wad over this “shocking” video.
CBC contacted the Canadian military for an explanation about the video and the head of the Royal Canadian Air Force, Lt.-Gen. Yvan Blondin, said that last week he requested an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the video. “Although I can’t comment on the details of this incident while the CFNIS is conducting its independent investigation, I express my apologies to those who may feel offended, and reaffirm my commitment to take any possible administrative, disciplinary or corrective actions that may be warranted.”
