The shame brought upon the entire country by a few bad men from our military’s special forces is a brutal truth Australians now have no choice but to handle. On Thursday the findings of a four-year-long Defence Force inquiry into the war in Afghanistan were released. The report detailed shocking crimes, including murders, allegedly committed by men who were supposed to be our best-trained, most elite soldiers. What’s staggering is the scale of the wrongdoing – 39 potentially unlawful deaths including Afghan civilians and children. Nick McKenzie has been at the forefront of the reporting of this story for three years. In an exclusive interview with 60 MINUTES he asks the Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Rick Burr, to explain how this disaster was ever allowed to happen, and how far up the chain of command responsibility for it should rest.
