Well this is all speculation at the moment, so i would like to reserve my opinion until after i watch the interview.
Former intelligence officer Rod Barton maintains he interrogated prisoners in Iraq, contradicting the Government which says he only took part in interviews.
Labor Senator Chris Evans says Mr Barton and others will be invited to give evidence to the inquiry.
He says the Government has misled the public.
"There are people we know who've been involved who haven't spoken yet and it would be nice to hear what they have to say," he said.
"Labor hopes this inquiry will get the truth out about what happened in Iraq and what the Australian involvement was."
An inquiry into new allegations Australians were involved in the interrogation of Iraqi prisoners begins today in Canberra.
Last month, former defence officer and weapons inspector Rod Barton reignited the debate over whether Australians have interrogated prisoners.
He said he had interrogated scientists at Camp Cropper, near Baghdad.
Mr Barton will give his evidence this afternoon.
