The Pentagon on Thursday charged an Australian citizen with helping al Qaida and trying to kill American troops in Afghanistan, setting the stage for the first trial of an accused terrorist suspect being held at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Pentagon officials allege that David Hicks, 31, a one-time outback cowboy and kangaroo skinner, was in league with al Qaida in Afghanistan at the time of the U.S invasion in 2001.
