Australian war crimes in Afghanistan revealed
Countries around the world treat their national security whistleblowers harshly, especially when those whistleblowers reveal evidence of war crimes. One of the best—and most recent—examples is from Australia. David McBride, a former Australian army attorney, is facing criminal charges for revealing Australian soldiers committed war crimes and crimes against humanity in Afghanistan. McBride, a decorated combat veteran, now faces the prospect of spending much of the rest of his life in prison. In this episode of the Whistleblowers, John Kiriakou sits down with David to discuss his ongoing case.
