Nazi swastika flag flown on Australian Defence vehicle in Afghanistan

A leaked photo shows an Australian Army vehicle flying the Nazi swastika flag while on operation in Afghanistan.

"The flag was briefly raised above an Australian Army vehicle in Afghanistan in 2007.

The ABC recently published claims in relation to the alleged killing of unarmed Afghan men by a different group of Australian special forces personnel during an operation in the village of Darwan, five years later in September 2012.

The Darwan revelations came after details of an explosive internal report commissioned by Defence were leaked.

The report, commissioned in 2016 and based on confidential interviews with special forces soldiers, said some of those interviewed felt that the cultural problems had developed because of weak leadership on the part of some special operations commanders who had "disregarded the telltale signs of dysfunction".
