THE US military lawyer for Australian Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks wants to discuss the new charge laid against his client with the Government.
Hicks was charged today with "material support for terrorism" and referred for trial by military commission at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the Pentagon said.
Judge Susan Crawford dismissed a second charge of attempted murder against Hicks after concluding there was no "probable cause" to justify it.
Hicks's military-appointed lawyer Major Michael Mori, who is in Melbourne, said today the dismissal of the attempted murder charge was an admission by the US commission system that all the charges laid against Hicks were made up and had no basis in law and fact.
"It's disgusting that he has spent five years in Guantanamo for made-up charges," Maj Mori said.
"David has been charged with only one offence - material support of terrorism. The material support charge has never existed in the laws of war. It was created in October 2006.
"The US is applying this offence to David retrospectively even though Australian ministers have said that is inappropriate."
[ cf Hicks's lawyer seeks government meeting WOW!!!!
Maybe it is time for that Draft Dodging Dope Smoking Anti-Military Anti-American Ambulance Chaser to decide if they Support the GREATEST MILITARY LEADER EVER!!!!!!!
Or are they going to continue to Stab Our Valiant Fighting Forces In The Back by LIMITING the War Powers of a War President to Merely Facts and Reality!!!
Clearly IF the Divine Will Has DIVINELY DECIDED, as is clear and compelling, from the Argument From Intelligent Design, that a War President IS the Divine Decider Who Decides Divinely, and the Divine Will Has Willed His Divinity, then either these God Hating America Bashers are going to put away their failed Reality Based World and get on board the Freedom Train that is pulling out of the Station with the Divine Dubya giving evereyone the fresh new soap, and on time, no less!!!
All Hail Great Leader!!!! For he has electrolytes, what plants want.
