Along with so many others, I will never understand the decision by Canberra to remove 2 Squadron SASR from the order of battle.
More so, before any confirmation of guilt or otherwise.
Now, there has been 12-13 more troopers from the accused who have been reinstated, while the remaining few still are yet to be judged.
One sound quality of leadership is to accept responsibility for poor decisions and learn from them.
It follows that 2 Squadron SASR must be returned to the order of battle, as quickly, if not quicker, than the disgraceful decision to unfairly cast such a loyal and battle-proven unit into obscurity.
Prime Minister, this whole entire episode, embracing all ranks, must be dismissed this very day and the tumbril destroyed for ever and a day.
FOR IT SURE AIN’T A WAY TO FIGHT AND WIN A WAR.
