This is a must listen - Interview With Malalai Joya
Hamid Karzai was sworn in for another term as Afghanistan's President this morning. This against the backdrop of explosive news here in Canada that in 2006 and 2007, senior government officials including the prime minister's office and the defense ministry were told Afghan detainees taken by Canadian troops and handed to Afghan officials were subject to beatings and electric shocks.

Hamid Karzai was sworn in for another term as Afghanistan's President this morning. This against the backdrop of explosive news here in Canada that in 2006 and 2007, senior government officials including the prime minister's office and the defense ministry were told Afghan detainees taken by Canadian troops and handed to Afghan officials were subject to beatings and electric shocks.

This morning as Ottawa reels from news that could affect Canadian politics and it's place in international law... a lone Afghan woman is making her way across to Canada arguing that our troops and all foreign forces should get out.

Malalai Joya was 27-years-old when she became the youngest person elected to the new Afghan Parliament. She's now suspended from Parliament for criticizing other MPs and accusing many of being warlords and criminals. She calls Afghanistan's democracy a farce and says her country's liberation is a lie. She has written a book called A Woman Among Warlords. Malalai Joya was in Toronto.

Please wait a moment for audio to load, then press play.
