This unblinking cretin must answer new OIA revelations
Can we all pause and just consider that today we found out that the NZDF lied directly to our faces about war crimes in Afghanistan.
When the book Hit and Run was published in March last year, the Chief of Defence Force Tim Keating held a press conference claiming that the book had nothing to do with the New Zealand SAS because the SAS had been in a different place on that date.
In response to questions from reporters, Keating said:
“It’s irrefutable that we operated in a different area to the claims of the book” and
“it’s not on an operation the NZSAS conducted.”
Just before the 2017 election, the Chief of the Defence Force lied directly to our faces about a revenge attack personally signed off by John Key that burnt civilian houses, wounded 15 civilians and killed 6.
NZ ordered the Apache Attack Helicopter strike, we are responsible for this, we may have committed a war crime personally signed off by the Prime Minister and the military lied to our faces about it.
If we have a functioning fourth estate, this should lead every news bulletin and Keating must be forced by the media to explain why he lied.
