Harjit Sajjan, the minister of National Defence, needs to resign from his post over what he is now calling his “mistake” taking credit for planning a major campaign against the Taliban when he was serving in Afghanistan in the mid-2000s.

Sajjan doesn’t need to leave because of his inaccurate boast about being the “architect” of Operation Medusa in 2006. He doesn’t need to clean out his desk because his lie (not “mistake”) disrespected those who really did plan and fight Canada’s largest combat operation during the Afghan war. (Although if he is an honourable man, his big untruth will be enough to prompt him to step aside.)

By claiming to have been the mission’s mastermind, Sajjan dishonoured the real architects and, more importantly, he dishonoured the 12 Canadian soldiers killed during Medusa by attempting to steal some of the glory from their sacrifice.
