As highlighted by a moderator at The Standard:
So, to recap: John Key is sending soldiers (we can’t identify) into an area (roughly outlined) for a length of time (we’re not clear on) to train soldiers (whose loyalty we don’t know) to fight (alongside allies we don’t trust) an enemy (that is loosely defined) led by a person (whose name he doesn’t remember).
There are plenty of good, operational reasons to not publicize specifics of military deployments. But when it’s that vague? You know the wool’s getting pulled over someone’s eyes, and it’s probably ours.
