Lynn Freeman talks to Paul Sinclair, a Regional Security Fellow at Victoria University's Centre for Strategic Studies. He has worked as a Ministry of Defence policy officer, private secretary to the Defence Minister, and for 12 years as head of the Ministry of Defence's International Relations Branch.
