Defence PR silence deafening

Yet again the Defence PR machine swings into silence over the alleged death of Afghan civilians (Defence silent on civilian deaths, SMH, 1 December).

 

This is typical of the way the Department has been run for the past eight or so years. “No comment”, is the usual response over anything controversial.

 

You’d think with more than 180 people employed in PR they’d be able to come up with something better than that.

 

The trouble is that these people are simply doing the government’s bidding. They are the front-line example of the way the Liberals controlled information to excess.

 

Over to you, Joel Fitzgibbon.
