Uppers and Downer

Mamdouh Habib is free. Our (Australian) Foreign Minister is being an arsehole. I can't be bothered being polite about this. Mr Habib has been detained and tortured in Pakistan, Egypt, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay since October 2001. And this is what current Foreign Minister Alexander Downer has to say ~

"ASIO and the Australian Federal Police and the NSW police will monitor his activities...We will make sure that at no time he becomes a threat to the Australian people."

Mr Downer's un-reasoning would have placed Nelson Mandela under surveillance too.

Mr Downer also says ~

Al-Qaeda is the world's most evil terrorist organisation.

Right. And Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay are angelic institutions of freedom.
