Nicky Hager is a ground-breaking investigative journalist and best-selling author. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh once said of him: “Nicky
Hager has more knowledge and understanding of the American intelligence
world in Afghanistan — both its good and its very bad points — than any
reporter I know.”
Hager’s latest book, which he co-authored with Jon Stephenson, is called Hit and Run: The New Zealand SAS in Afghanistan and the meaning of honour.
It documents potential war crimes committed by New Zealand personnel in
Afghanistan in 2010 and includes a variety of sources, including
members of the military who came forward to the authors with the truth
about what happened at the time. Anti-Media caught up with Mr.
Hager to get his take on the recent developments currently under way in
the Middle East and Asia, as well as to learn about his latest book.
