Robert Semrau was dismissed from the Canadian Forces after he was found guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer in connection with the fatal shooting of a wounded Taliban insurgent in Afghanistan.

Semrau, whose case sparked a fierce debate over soldiers' ethics, had faced charges of second-degree murder, attempted murder and failure to perform a military duty in the incident that occurred on Oct. 19, 2008.

The former captain, who has just written a book The Taliban Don't Wave, speaks with Anna Maria Tremonti, host of CBC Radio's The Current, about his experiences.
