    Sky News host Alan Jones says political and military leadership has a lot to answer for as Australia has announced the guilt of our soldiers in Afghanistan to the world before anyone has walked up the steps to a court of law. “We learn today, two Australian defence members – fathers – took their own lives this month,” Mr Jones said. “We have announced to the world guilt of our soldiers in Afghanistan before anyone has walked up the steps to a court of law. “Political and military leadership has a lot to answer for.” Mr Jones spoke of the apologies offered by Australian defence authorities to Afghanistan and the alleged victims’ families. “What do we know about the statues of the so-called victim other than what is alleged and untested?” he said. “The pile on continues, how do you defend the nation by demoralizing those charged with that responsibility of defence? “The Prime Minister has done awful damage to the morale of our troops talking about the ‘brutal truths’ of this report when none of the allegations have been tested in a court of law. “The Prime Minister can repair part of the damage he has done by sacking the Chief of the Defence Force General Angus Campbell and the Chief of the Army Lieutenant General Rick Burr. “That would help restore morale.”
