      Canadian General in Charge of Kandahar Offensive Fired in Sex Scandal

      Brig. Gen. Daniel Menard, the Canadian officer due to lead the Kandahar offensive by American, Canadian and other troops has been fired in a sex scandal. "Besides being a national embarrassment for Canada, Menard's removal wields a blow to NATO's preparations for the upcoming Kandahar offensive. As a commander there, Menard was in charge of American troops as well as Canada's 2,800 soldiers, who are due to be withdrawn from Afghanistan next year."
