The circumstances of the killing of New Zealand private Leonard Manning in East Timor last year raised many more questions than were answered (or even addressed) in the report of the official Army inquiry released last November. There questions go right to the heart of a crucial issue for New Zealand as far as its defence forces are concerned. Will we resolve properly to support such forces as we send overseas or will we continue to send them anyway?
