VIDEO: Operation Mission Worthy - 05: New TV ad to counter liberal-leftist smear campaign in U.S.

I’ll make this Part Five in my series—an effort to help fill the leadership vacuum in Canada insofar as explaining the war on terror to Canadians—liberals, mostly, but many others too.  My little series is called Operation Mission Worthy to give it the tone of a military mission.  That way, the pacifist, blinkered and close-minded […]
