The 'why' behind the Afghan Files story - the whistle blower speaks

People who tell stories governments don't want to hear about their internal workings tend to not be popular and also are pursued if they part with information deemed confidential to the media. David McBride, a military lawyer, raised concerns about the conduct of Australian troops in Afghanistan through appropriate channels in the Department of Defence.

He talks through the challenges of revealing unpleasant truths in this episode.
