Consider this report from colleagues Jamie Walker and Jeremy Roberts last week which indicates, again, that Hicks was no innocent abroad.

Despite all the pontification over what David Hicks was or wasn’t doing in Afghanistan, what he or his family are in denial about, what defines a ‘terrorist’ and what doesn’t, the simple fact remains that his incarceration both in Guantanamo Bay and Yatala jail were politically oriented. The only irony, if indeed any exists, lies in the fact that despite the political manouvering, nothing has been proven one way or another regarding ‘guilt’ and a government has been thrown out, if not as a direct result, at least partially.
Personally, I don’t see Geoff Elliott’s point.
