Uh some of this makes sense.
In the above linked article I found the following.
There were allegations of abuse against Mr. Hicks - who i'd be lying if I said I personally had pity for - (just being honest). It seems that a
complaint was registered on his behalf, but not with the US government. That is improper. If you believe someone is being abused you register the
complaint with the government. Why would you register it with Australia, they are not the ones holding him?
LEIGH SALES: Major Smith said if the allegations are scurrilous, Major Mori and Steve Kenny should be investigated.
What's the problem with this???? If these people made up a nasty story about American soliders abusing someone, and the guy wasn't abused at all...
damn right they should be held accountable for the fraudulent claims. Just like anyone else would. If I say someone beat me up, and that person gets
investigated, and it turns out he did nothing? Of course I should be held responsible for lying.
And here's the email clip that the uproar seems to be about.
EMAIL EXCERPT: Abuse allegations in the current climate are very serious and should be made appropriately to the US Government. If these are
not legitimate issues and constitute grandstanding by Major Mori and Mr Kenny, their representation, statements and actions should be investigated by
appropriate ethics agencies.
Can someone please tell me what in the world is wrong with this statement? The email was saying that the government takes abuse allegations seriously
and the way to get them taken care of is to bring it to the government's attention by filing a report etc. If the charges are proven false and
baseless, well then yes an investigation into the people filing the charges should happen. Why shouldn't it? If Major Mori made a claim that turned
out to be bull, why shouldn't he be held responsible like any other person would be.
Spare me the whining. If he was abused, the investigation will show that. If he wasn't abused and his lawyers are opportunistic pigs trying to get
some attention, then it's obviously time for someone to get disbarred.
