I don’t think that anybody other than the deluded would be surprised that David Hicks pleaded guilty to providing material support to a terrorist organisation earlier today…it hardly matters whether he did it or not, all that matters is that he has more chance of seeing Australia as a free man again by pleading guilty than pleading not guilty.
He has, however, entered a not guilty plea to the charge of providing support to a specific terrorist act.
All that is left now is for him to explain what he did to the military court, and then for him to be sentenced. A deal is in place for him to serve any jail time here in Australia, and seeing as he has already served about five years in Guantanamo Bay, it’s not inconceivable that he could be a free man very soon.
It’s quite interesting to look at the results of the following poll, which finished on the 11th of March.
I do have to wonder how different the results would be if I was to hold the poll right now.
