Australia has a long history of kowtowing to the US. They have taken the approach of sucking up to the global bully in the hope that they will get protection and crumbs from the USA's table. Maybe its a rational foreign policy, but its not right.

Anyway, worrying about an extradition process for someone who has committed a minor crime is all well and good, but at least they are following some kind of legal procedure, even if it is overkill and inappropriate. Of far more concern to me is the suspension of the rule of law, natural justice and human rights represented by Guantanamo Bay.

Guantanamo Bay is an absolute disgrace. There is no defense for such an abuse of power. It is one small step in the war against terrorism, but one giant leap along the road to fascism.
