You know those horrible, nasty terrorists that they’ve been keeping on Guant½namo? You know how we’ve been giving up all our civil liberties supposedly because we’re in such danger? Well, they finally finished the trial for one of the most “dangerous.”
Australian David Hicks pleaded guilty at the Guant½namo Bay Navy Base yesterday to supporting terrorism in exchange for a nine-month prison sentence under a plea deal that forbids him from claiming he was abused in U.S. custody.
In return, Hicks, 31, will be allowed to leave Guant½namo within 60 days to serve out the sentence in his native Australia. He will be free by New Year’s Eve.
Meanwhile, Richard Paey is still serving 25 years in prison for taking medicine for multiple sclerosis and failed spine surgery.
I am angry on so many levels, I can’t sort through them all right now.
