Could someone remind the government that at least some of the ADF leadership were in the job when the alleged crimes occurred in Afghanistan....... not implying anyone appointed is responsible but would it not make sense to re-think this fetish for appointing ex military people to manage things.... when clearly at least some of the MOST important aspects of military activity have seemingly not been managed at all???
