Oh no, who woulda thonked!

From the NZ Herald (http://msn.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10748724):

Hager says "Kiwi Camp" has been doubling as a secret CIA base - one of several across Afghanistan charged with gathering "actionable intelligence" for use in special forces operations and aerial attacks on insurgents.

Hager, however, accuses the Defence Force of running a continuing public relations campaign concentrated on producing "rosy stories" showing friendly New Zealand soldiers building schools, sinking wells and handing out gifts to smiling children.

The book, however, questions just how much successful aid and reconstruction work has been carried out by New Zealand soldiers in Bamiyan, quoting one Army commander as saying there was no long-term view of what the provincial reconstruction team was trying to achieve.

Think I'll wait for the movie - to be true to the book, they'll have to wait until Jim Carrey or Mike Myers are available because it could only be fiction and then only a comedy...not even any hot chicks...
