Well then, why didn't I go to Iraq to 'cover' the withdrawal of Aussie Troops? Because there was not a withdrawal! No, that's right no withdrawal. Did anyone see a withdrawal on TV, hear about it on the radio, see it in the Newspapers? No? Maybe you saw heard or read about one particular Battalion coming home in July, what you may have heard is mention of the 'withdrawal' that this Battalion was a 'part' of the withdrawal. What you DID NOT SEE OR HEAR was an actual WITHDRAWAL. There was not a withdrawal and you will not see any Media coverage about it or anything related to it. Google it, see if you can find any evidence of the massive logistical undertaking that is required to bring all our materiel and Staff, both military and civilian back from Iraq.
