In February, before it was revealed David Hicks had actually put on weight during his Guantanamo holiday, we were told how gaunt and wretchedhe’d become:
They say a picture speaks ten thousand words. This new image of David Hicks — created by a world renowned face recognition expert — is a graphic illustration of the passage of time David Hicks has being left to languish in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Five years in isolated detention, without trial, leaps out in this image. It’s a ghost of the David Hicks we’re used to seeing, and one that reflects the accurate descriptions of his Australian lawyer, David McLeod, who has just seen him.
This picture has also prompted veteran journalist Ray Martin to publicly, and very powerfully declare, that he’s “ashamed to be an Aussie” over the Federal Government’s response to David Hicks, wisely asking “what has happened to the Aussie ‘fair go’?’
The picture lied. Is Ray Martin still ashamed? Fair go, Ray. In latest Hicks weight news:
Hicks jnr was in good spirits, chatty, much slimmer and with better colour than when Mr Hicks saw him in Cuba in late March …
So now it’s good that he’s lost weight. This guy is worse than Oprah.
UPDATE. Judging by these pics, Bryan Law has been held in Gitmo for decades. The guy’s a one-man Pine Gap Four.
