Kiwi soldiers identities to be kept secret are on way to #Iraq

by JO MOIR
The Government is keeping a tight lid on the identities of the soldiers being deployed to Iraq to ensure the safety of both them and their families from what it calls a barbaric terrorist group with “broad tentacles”.
The New Zealand Defence Force’s reconnaissance team has already arrived in Iraq and next month Kiwi troops were expected to be deployed to train Iraqi soldiers in the fight against Islamic State (IS).
While the threat to soldiers and their families shouldn’t be a worry on a “daily basis”, Defence Minister Gerry Brownlee told
TVNZ’s Q+A it was enough of a concern to warrant protecting the identities of all those being deployed.
The deployment would still be recognised at a Government level but their departure would be treated “a little different this time” to ensure all the right protections, he said.
“We shouldn’t assume that New Zealanders aren’t affected by this particular terrorist grouping. They have very broad tentacles, deep connections and extraordinary reach to people who are disaffected through social media such that we’ve never seen before.”
Brownlee said IS was far more “financially resourced” in ways other terrorist organisations haven’t been.
“They have a message that is very much opposed to the way of life that we enjoy here in New Zealand.”
A status of forces agreement to protect New Zealand soldiers from civil and military court processes in Iraq is still to be worked out with the Iraq Government.

Fabrication in BBC Panorama 'Saving Syria’s Children'

Analysis of the 30 September 2013 BBC Panorama documentary 'Saving Syria's Children' and related BBC News reports, contending that sequences filmed by BBC personnel and others at Atareb Hospital, Aleppo on 26 August 2013 purporting to show the aftermath of an incendiary bomb attack on a school in Urm Al-Kubra are largely, if not entirely, staged.
