Lawyers for Australian Guantanamo Bay resident Mamdouh Habib claim that he may have been mistreated. Turns out Mamdouh raised similar allegations three years ago:

Mamdouh Habib, one of two Australians arrested on suspicion of terrorist links and held at Cuba's Guantanamo Bay, brought charges against [Bilal] Khazal in November 2001, alleging he had beaten and threatened him in the main street of Lakemba. Mr Khazal denies ever attacking Mr Habib and in February 2002, with Mr Habib detained in Cuba, police withdrew the charges.

Bilal Khazal ... hmmm ... that name rings a bell. Maybe the Gnu Hunter can help out.

I'd like to write something witty; or perhaps posit some little theory as to what this all means in relation to the War on Terror, Labor policy on the Gitmo prisoners or something of that serious kind.

But, you know what, I'm just so sick of Islamic idiots, their mindless vendettas - including against one another, evidently - and their truly sickening use of this country's liberties and beauties for their own ends.

Neither of these two creatures deserves to be an Australian and I wish they, and others like them, would simply fuck off.
