As a postscript to my earlier comment, I am quite offended by the implication that the title of this article puts out. In my opinion it implies that the Canadian military was directly responsible for any torture whether or not it did happen and that is simply not the case.

The Red Cross (the Red Cross has DIRECT access to detainees) has stated that any allegations they have heard would be taken up with the relevant nation's authority responsible for international human rights (not Mr. Colvin). IMO, Colvin isn't so much as whistleblower as an issue-maker. The real issue in my opinion is whether or not the detainees were tortured but rather the amount of time it took for the new policy of tracking prisoners to be implemented.
