I seriously question the 'integrity' of the New Zeland media. OK, perhaps an oxymoron.
So some freelance journo snaps a shot of a couple of NZSAS guys in Kabul at the time that a couple of ragheads set out on their mission to f**k 77 virgins. He wouldn't have a clue who a very hairy Willie Apiata VC, was.
Back in dear old NZ Granny Herald somehow makes the connection and publishes the photo identifying Apiata.
You bastards have just made Apiata a high value target for the Talaban. Proud of it?
The PM and the military are right to condemn this abuse of process by the Herald under the guise of media freedom because you can bet your bottom dollar that the haters and wreckers in this country; the John Minto's and the Keith Locke's of this world, will have sent the photo back to their Talaban friends along with a donation for the first guy to take him (Apiata) out.
