Australian Guantanamo Bay inmate David Hicks is facing a US military trial some time this month. ABC Four Corners last night presented the so-called “case” against Hicks (the Sydney Morning Herald has more) and discovered that in fact he was probably in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A mis-guided man is one thing, possibly spending the rest of his life in prison is another. The Australian government cares little about Hicks because the Bush administration must always be appeased.

Australia is an independent nation?
