U.S. more equal than partners

Australia continues to be a loyal member of the ever-shrinking Coalition of the Willing in Iraq and Afghanistan. So why wasn’t Australian citizen and Al Qaeda trainee David Hicks incarcerated, interrogated, charged, tried, convicted and sentenced in Australia by Australians?

Instead, Hicks has been a POW at Gitmo–and subject to the judgment of a U.S. military tribunal. Creepy.

But wait. There’s more. Much, much more.
