Agree 💯. I have no problem with AFP. They treated me very fairly. But they honestly do not believe that they are able to investigate politicians or APS when they apparently doing ‘Govt stuff’. We need more. We need a legal minded ‘untouchables’. A FedICAC. #WhoPaidPorter
This is misleading horse shit There are many political crimes that are unable to be investigated by police This is what the Scott Morrison govt are hiding behind too Police often don't have the authority to pursue crimes against tax payers committed behind parliament's shield.

Mick Fuller’s $90,000 pay rise followed by his obsequious actions to politicians is typical in Aust. The ‘watchdogs’ that should be policing the parliamentarians are increasingly ‘bought’. Yet it’s the whistleblowers who face gaol. invidious.fdn.fr/iKO1lxfzQA4 via @YouTube

Count me in your defence team for any actions bought by politicians after they are called corrupt.
Ha. Oh please. “Defence Minister Peter Dutton has raised the idea of a taxpayer-funded legal fighting fund for MPs to pursue defamation claims, claiming it should be considered as a “workplace entitlement”. news.com.au/national/politic…

Can't help the feeling that this whole Porter blind trust thing is much bigger than appears. Given what the Speaker did and then the Gov voting against the referral there seems to be tension. A protection racket not only for Porter but possibly big names outside parliament.

It’s looks like an ICAC is not such a bad thing after all. Which makes a Govt that deliberately delays instituting one, in defiance of its promises to do so, highly questionable. Why should people follow the law, if leaders don’t? #auspol #FedICAC smh.com.au/national/nsw/deva…

By going to the UN and knowingly making a false case for war, and then afterwards shrugging it off by the simple ‘I follow orders. It’s what I do’ he revealed his true nature, and the reason for his success.

People almost invariably don’t change once they get ‘to the top’. Someone who thinks it’s an excuse to do something they know to lack honour, simply because they are told to by a superior, is somehow who already thinks that way. He wasn’t a bullied ‘Corporal’. He had a choice.

We can safely assume that Powell’s was not only a ‘yes man’ in his ultimate failure, but a ‘yes man’ throughout his career. He did what he was told. And then some. He succeeded by obeying, and never questioning.

As such, his story is not inspirational, rather it is tragic. A man that sold his soul for acceptance. He is not the only one, of course, but a hero? No. A hero says no when he is asked to give up his honour.

If you think Powell is a ‘black icon’ consider what would his answer would have been if he had been asked to lie about black violence to ensure a military crackdown by the President? If you are adamant he wouldn’t have lied then, why do you assume that Iraq lives are worth less?

Great positions of state carry responsibilities, particularly so, as a former military officer. You lie, and a million people around the world make an assumption about your country, and your former army.

There are two ways of looking at Powell’s lie: it revealed the truth simply about him, or the truth about the ethics of the institution that produced him. Neither is good. The fact that President Biden thinks he is an American hero, tells the world about Biden’s real values.

I don’t mourn Colin Powell. But I would a leader that told the truth, whatever his Commander in Chief asked him to. That’s the only American General who deserves respect.

True leaders stand tall and don’t buckle when asked to dishonour their legacy for personal gain.

General David Hurley is Australia’s answer to Colin Powell. He too lied. Because he was asked to. Honour. Courage. Integrity. But above all ‘Teamwork’. #ColinPowell #auspol #iraqwarlies #abughraib #officialsecrets
