ASIO briefings: Islam debate is ensnared in Liberal leadership battle
by David Wroe
The war within the Coalition on national security has gone nuclear.
The thesis being pushed by conservatives is that the head of ASIO has tried to muzzle MPs who simply want to have an honest debate about Islam.
How has he done this? By quietly phoning them and telling them precisely what ASIO has been saying for about two years: good relations with the Muslim community are vital to security agencies' work and inflammatory rhetoric about Muslims doesn't help.
