In conversation with whistle-blower David McBride

David McBride is a courageous whistleblower who exposed Australian war crimes in Afghanistan. For his sins, he’s now facing trial and potentially life in prison (while not one soldier who committed the war crimes has faced court).

We’ve become friends over the last years and I deeply admire his principles.

David interviewed me recently about my work, identity, legalizing drugs, the Middle East and failing media standards when covering war.
