Elite Australian soldiers are involved in covert operations for the Americans in the “war on terror”, co-ordinated through the top-secret, Paris-based centre Alliance Base. There has been no public discussion about these missions, but Crikey understands the soldiers are involved in targeting, interrogation and assassinations in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

    This is avery risky business, just look at the upcoming trial of the three Australian digs, which seems to have gone very quiet lately.
    Big Julie is sucking up to the Yanks big time, what our slimy politicians will do for a bit of praise, or a photo op.
    But you can bet that the real losers will be the Australian public.

    Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. First as tragedy, then as farce.

    Elitism has no place in Australia. So selling Australian elitism to the CIA deserves discredit just like dodgy Pakistani cricketers profiting from bookmakers.

    These bastards are behind why Australia is copping so any Afghani asylum seekers.
    Families of complicit SAS should be putting up Afghani families in their spare room.
