Well, tomorrow the US Supreme Court begins its case into whether or not the detainnes at Guantanamo Bay fall under the jurisdiction of the US legal
system. Personally, I'm hoping it does. Mainly because of the 2 Australians held there. But also because if the detainnes are tried under a military
tribunal, the results are pretty much fixed. Though some of them may be terrorists, I reckon many of them aren't. Look at theAustralian detainee
David Hicks. The guards at GB at first said that he constantly threatened them and spat at them. But when prisoners who are released and his marine
lawyer talk, they all say he's just a really quiet guy and helps the other detainees who can't speak english. What's up with that? Does the US need
to make an example of someone? I sure hope they don't. Hicks is still locked up in solitary confinement and keeps himself sane by catching mice in
his cell. Even his own US appointed Marine lawyer believes his detainment in wrong.
Well, thats my little rant. What are your views on this matter of the detainees and should they be tried under the US legal system?
