The Australian Guantanamo bay detainee Mamdouh Habib has been released according Australian ABC radio. However, neither the US nor the Australian Government will confirm this, but it is believed that the US Department of Defence will formally announce his release once he has arrived back in Australia
MAMDOUH Habib has reportedly left Guantanamo Bay after more than three years in detention.
ABC radio has reported the US Department of Defence will formally announce the transfer once Mr Habib lands safely in Australia, but will not officially confirm his departure until then for operational and security reasons.

It's about time they released him. The US didn't have any solid evidence against him. And seeing the only evidence they had was a "confession" you could easily tell it was not the most solid evidence.
There are a number of things that went wrong with this case, bad evidence, torture, unlawful detainment etc. but I believe the worst thing about it is that the Australian Government did absoloutly nothing at all to secure the release of Habib. They just sat around and said that "Australia does not have the laws to prosecute Mr. Habib so we're letting US do it."
