What I wrote today when I signed www.getup.org.au's petition to the Australian government to bring David Hicks back from his unjust and now illegal detention in Guantanamo Bay:
(Alexander Downer,)"...it's becoming increasingly apparent that your continued refusal is a desperate attempt to save face - both yours and your leader's. Show some compassion and integrity! Admit you over-reacted in the heat of the moment during the worst terrorist threat the world has ever known. Admit that the freedom of a young Australian is worth more than a few points in your next opinion poll. David Hicks is sorry he did the wrong thing, can you not at least admit the same?"
