Then when Indonesia murders people in Irian Jaya or bombs Australians, Indonesia can point to Oz official murders and say 'so what?'

None of the Aussie murderers have been charged.

Only the whistleblower ended up in jail.    Roll Eyes

Former military lawyer David McBride sentenced to more than
five years in jail for sharing classified information with journalists

Former military lawyer David McBride has been sentenced to five years and eight months in jail for sharing classified military documents with journalists.

McBride pleaded guilty to three charges, including theft and sharing documents classified as secret, with members of the press.

ACT Supreme Court Justice David Mossop rejected McBride's case that he did not believe he was breaking the law, and found the offences were aggravated by his high-security rating, which gave him access to the material.

.........
.........

McBride was charged after handing the classified material to journalists Andrew Clark, Chris Masters and Dan Oakes.

The court heard the journalists used it to publish stories revealing allegations Australian troops were involved in illegal killings in Afghanistan,
even though that was at odds with McBride's intention in sharing the documents.






OBSERVATION;
The facts, as presented, seem to portray the 'Former military lawyer David McBride' [despite 'his high-security rating'],
as........being a somewhat naive individual.  ????

Naive, in choosing to.........'shar(e) documents classified as secret, with members of the press'
....yet not able to deduce for himself,
that those 'members of the press' would likely choose to 'write the particular story',
which the press themselves, determined to be the most 'explosive' and embarrassing ???

As Alexander Downer said 'David Hicks was a fool' and deserved to be jailed.  McBride is naive, a fool, is jailed and thinks murder is bad.

1. Albanese says he can't control courts. 2. Attorney-General Dreyfus ordered the discontinuation of the prosecution of whistleblower Bernard Collaery.
One of those statements is correct.
