More Harper's Afghan Mission Panel

You can find the goods on these people here. They are all tied to Harper's party, explicit hawks, or both. Moreover none of them appear to have any specific background on central Asia (yes John Manley was a Foreign Affairs but that's broader than what I have in mind), they are all white, mostly male, mostly Anglophone, none appear to have much (or any) military experience and all appear to be middle-aged or older.

So Harper's panel is a group of older white (mostly) guys with no specific experience in Afghan affairs or the military but who are almost all on record as supporting the mission. It's a wonder Harper didn't appoint himself to the committee.
