CSIS chief has lost credibility with the Canadian people

Richard Fadden's too-clever-by-half interview in which he tipped his hand by coyly suggesting some of our key political decision-makers are compromised by foreign powers, must be a career terminator.

What throws his fatuous oneupmanship into sharper relief is how it comes so soon after John Major's damning Air India bombing report, giving Canadians an unflattering portrayal of the spy agency's serial bungling in the 1985 case of domestic terrorism.

When the head of CSIS lends himself to caricature and comes perilously close to resembling the mishap-prone spooks in Mad magazine's Spy vs. Spy comic strip, you have to know it's time for him to go.

I agreed that foreign influence is a direct threat to the constitutional order of Canada, however, this article failed to mention the influence at the highest federal level. That is the influence of Israel, and in comparison, Iran is the least of our worries.
