Hillier Smells Smoke, Bails Out!

Now that Canada's mission to Afghanistan has degraded to the point that the goal has shifted from idealism to realism, the guy who masterminded this screw up, the Big Cod hisself, has decided to quietly step out the back door.

General Rick Hillier has surprised no one in announcing he'll be retiring this summer.

Gee, with only another three years to go you would have thought Hillier might just stay around to see the Afghanistan mission wrapped up. Maybe he already sees the way it's going to wrap up and doesn't want to be around to have to wear that.
