More allegations against our Defence Force. A documentary by Stuff Circuit claims the official explanation into the 2012 raid of Baghak where two New Zealand soldiers were killed is wrong. We know there was friendly fire between our soldiers and the Afghan army, but now the claim is we shot first. And further back in 2004 in Uruzgan province, we know that Willie Apiata earned his Victoria cross by carrying his injured commander 70 metres through a firefight to safety. But now we have allegations the day after that battle, the SAS went back to area and terrorised villagers. So what do we make of these claims? Intelligence and defence analyst Paul Buchanan joins Mike Hosking. LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW ABOVE
