  1. You forgot the example of when, and I believe this was in 2006 or 07, near when Capt Nichola Goddard was killed in action. A parent of another fallen soldier questioned the action of the government — at which point the government heavy-handedly went on the offensive, calling that parent out as a ‘partisan’… I don’t recall the specifics but maybe someone else does?
