The Hit & Run inquiry

New Zealand is gearing up for a year-long inquiry into allegations concerning civilian deaths resulting from an SAS operation in Afghanistan. Details here. The Defence Force is assembling a team to represent it in connection with the inquiry. The inquiry itself is being led by a former prime minister and a judge of the Supreme Court. The incumbent Chief of Defence Force previously headed the SAS; his successor did not.

  1. It would be interesting to see the terms of reference of the inquiry. How far and how long could it really go? Sometimes, deep causes of such events - if misconduct is proven - are rooted in how discipline is maintained within those units.
