Channel 9 Owes Public Explanation of Lebanon Conduct

Channel 9 must now provide what its 60 Minutes Program would require of anyone else involved in a debacle like the child abduction in Lebanon - a full accounting to the public of exactly what it did, what money it has paid or promised and to whom, both before and since the abduction, and a full accounting of which of its personnel decided on or approved the actions it carried out.

Channel 9 has embarrassed Australia and its diplomatic personnel, has put its own employees in danger, and has almost certainly been involved in a conspiracy to break the laws of another country. People are not entitled to take the law into their own hands, and two wrongs do not make a right.

60 Minutes seeks to shine a light in dark places and is strident about the public's right to know. On this occasion the public has a right to know exactly who in its organisation did what, and who is responsible for this.
