Interested on the wider readership's take on the following. This evening, Channel 4 News led with a report from Nick Paton-Walsh in Afghanistan relating to locally employed interpreters. Unlike those on TELIC, I can't comment from personal involvement, but on the face of it, Nick's report does seem to have several parallels to the situation facing those in Iraq. And for the "all journos are *******" brigade, simmer down. I, and others noted througout the years of getting the UK Government to adopt policies that acknowledged the risk to Iraqis employed by HMG, that Channel 4's coverage was well researched, and in particular Nick Paton-Walsh was scrupulous in ensuring that his reports were accurate. So, have we learnt and applied the lessons of the TELIC experience where local nationals are involved, or are we about to witness a classic military DÃ©jÃ vie?
