…so the NZDF doctored SAS footage to diminish the civilian casualty rate after already being caught out doctoring footage from a  previous meltdown and what does NZ media focus on?

The confession of someone who killed the PMs fucking cat!

It’s funny that the killing of the PMs cat gains more news headlines than the revelation that the NZDF showed politicians doctored footage to hide how many civilians the SAS killed in Afghanistan…

When launching the inquiry, Parker said he had been shown footage which showed people in the village were armed. He has now refused to comment on whether he was told of the deleted scenes and the US investigation.

Mark told the Herald he was aware the footage had been edited but had no recollection of being told about the missing 12 seconds or the US investigation into it being deleted.

Mitchell has confirmed he was not told of the missing 12 seconds or that an investigation had taken place into the deleted content. He said the footage he did see supported what he had been told about armed insurgents in the village and no inquiry was needed.

Brownlee said he believed he had been told. “As far as 12 seconds being removed, I have a recollection of reading that. I had that report at the time, I think.”

English and Key have not responded to requests for comment.

The Inquiry into Operation Burnham has also refused to comment on whether NZDF informed it about the US investigation.

…Paula Penfold and her investigative team originally pointed out that the footage the NZDF released to cover up another Afghanistan fuck up in 2017

The NZ Defence Force manipulated the Battle of Baghak video

Truth, it is said, is the first casualty of war.

And during the 16 years of the war in Afghanistan, truths have been trampled on and obliterated as much as in any other global conflict over the past century.

But in New Zealand, a country which respects transparency and freedom of expression, we probably assumed a higher standard of the Defence Force.

The Hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind are a small, petty and easily fooled people, we have a low imagination horizon anti intellectualism based on exploitation of confiscated indigenous resources where ignorance & malice is celebrated by the rural volk while middle class attention is engulfed between school rankings & property speculation.

Rest In Peace Paddles and all those Afghan civilians we murdered.

    People in New Zealand have a thing about cats and tax free capital gains

  2. Lucy says:

    To be honest people prefer to hear about a cat rather than NZDF. We ask our soldiers to do stuff we don’t want to do, then scream when they go outside the artificial parameters we set. We put them in harms way and then ask them to act with “honour” when they are trying to stay alive. They lie because the consequence of not lying is punishment for crimes committed when their level of fear and adrenaline did not make for good decisions. Their crimes are the result of the failure of this country to not send them into a situation where they are enemy combatants in a hostile land. So the people of NZ don’t want to hear that the people that they weaponized and sent to prop up a brutal corrupt regime did stuff that was not right, because who wants to know you’re complicit in murder?

    • G.A.P. says:

      Totally agree LUCY, although i definitely did not ask them to go to another country and murder the inhabitants.

    shows how shallow our media are

  4. michelle says:

    All i can say is shallow and what do you expect when a billionaire owns our media

  5. saveNZ says:

    Shocking, but what are the government going to do about it!

    Probably nothing and let the culture of doctored footage and killing civilian children become the norm…

    Too hard to actually govern the organisations, just let them continue in their unaccountable fiefdoms.

    Just like the SIS collusion with John Key against Goff to make him look like a fool and a liar over the Israeli passports ..

    An expensive report and enquiry that goes no where is my guess of the consequences!

  6. ShadowbannedRick says:

    Thats what you get for just following orders from your overseas masters, stop picking on our fukin soldiers, they dont have a choice in where there are sent or what operations they carry out, look to the real war criminals our POLITICIANS

  7. Applewood says:

    “…where ignorance & malice is celebrated by the rural volk while middle class attention… ” oh for heavens sake.

    Do you really think ignorance and malice don’t flourish in suburbia ? They breed in suburbia, and they spread like measles in suburbia, and they dry out the brains of the righteous.

    I do think though that many NZ’ers are now far more aware of the Afghanistan issues, partly because so many people know somebody in the NZDF who has been sworn to secrecy about it.

    Expecting answers from Key is also unrealistic because Key is truth-challenged, and Bill English is more interested in going to pop concerts, and expecting people to sympathise with the poor privileged little sod for having teenage acne. Some people have tragic lives.

    Cat = food. Could feed a couple of families in Stalin’s Russia – and rural volk in today’s China. Some people have tragic lives.

    These arse holes are just as guilty as the NZDF who murdered civilians and the even worse covered it up.

    That is the true extent of the last governments crimes many we still don’t know about and that they can escape with impunity is utterly contemptible.

    I still hope to see that grin wiped of that shysters face one day.

    • Sam Sam says:

      Oh come on this isn’t the first time the SAS has been hooked into the 5eyes assassination rings. We’ve at least been painting targets in the Middle East for Obamas drone campaign. Most of which we know are civilian murders. I mean come on whys everyone so naive about this shit. We’ve been killing people through special operations since world war 2. You know what I don’t like is when everyone is in denial about New Zealand’s assassination programmes. And here we have a fine example of one.

  9. mosa says:

    It is a funny old country New Zealand.

    We ( and the corporate media ) care more about ” celebrity ” than the murder of children at the hands of our own security forces and the fact it has been covered up by the NZDF , Key and the other gangsters.

    I think that this story would have had heavyweight journalists covering and investigating the seriousness of it 30 years ago when we has a fourth estate dedicated to bringing this stuff out in the daylight.
    In saying that Hagar and Stephenson deserve to be recognized for the work they have done exposing this.

    The outpouring of grief after March 15th obviously does not extend to the adults and child killed in this way in a far away country.

    • Snow White says:

      Truth and eloquence Mosa, thank you.

      Hager is a man who in the fullness of time could be a Nobel Prize winner, but not always regarded kindly here because, as you say, this is a funny old country.

  10. michelle says:

    Yes your right Mosa we talk about having moral and principles and being caring yet we turn a blind eye to this , and this is an abuse of power under the brighter future government
