Norwegian sharpshooters defies confidentiality charter
The Norwegian defense are these days under heavy pressure due to a recently released book titled "Med mandat til å drepe" (Licensed to kill). The book was released anonymously by an unknown number of army personnel [... who may still serve in the army].
Norwegian army personnel have condemned the release due to the information revealed in the book, claiming violations of the official army 'confidentiality charter'; future patrols and routines may have to be changed.
In fact; the timing of the release of the book could not have been worse, due to the release of the Danish documentary 'Armadillo'. 'Armadillo' follows a group of Danish soldiers in Afghanistan and their experiences serving abroad.
The Norwegian DoD (Department of Defense) claim the situation not to be stirred up. However, the Norwegian army is trying track down the authors of 'Licensed to Kill'. The worst case scenario is that these sharpshooters will be prosecuted by a military tribunal.
These whistleblowers might have achieved their goal of increasing awareness of the Norwegian involvement in Afghanistan, but they have also released a bomb upon the Defense and army officials. It remains to discover whether the DoD and army will issue a decree which would almost outlaw these soldiers.
