ADF's rift with Minister

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 8 March, 2012 - 9:18 AM
Defence Force Chief Gen. David Hurley and Defence Minister Stephen Smith.

A rift of confidence has appeared between the Australian Defence Forces and the Defence Minister Stephen Smith over his handling of the sex skype scandal. Paul Murray spoke retired Major General Jim Molan about the Minister's failure to support the reinstatement of Com. Bruce Kafer as head of the Australian Defence Forces Academy.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Sorry to disenchant you but the defense forces are still one big boy's club: as are most things in this enlightened society.
    It seems to me that it's the same old some old: that women who come out about abuse are just making it up because they are somewhat "miffed" about something.
    Major General Jim Moran's comment about aberrant male individuals, begs the question: why were not such behaviour's recognized and dealt with before it reached such a point? Perhaps their actions were somewhat subtlely condoned by their supervisors and trainers?
    Stephen Smith did nothing wrong: he's not trying to make political gain out of this. He does not respond with knee-jerk reactions...I've always found his comments to considered and measured.

  • There will always be a rift between right and wrong, such are the hyper-sensitivities of the defensive.
