Dick Cheney pays a call on John Howard and suddenly the path of a Guantánamo Military Commission case changes dramatically. A plea bargain is reached, and a man who was once described as a cold-blooded terrorist suddenly is considered to present no real menace. He receives a sentence which is the absolute minimum possible to enable his prompt return to Australia. So what happened in that fateful meeting between the American vice president and the Australian prime minister? Listeners downunder can hear Harper’s Scott Horton discuss the case this morning on ABC’s Radio National “Breakfast.” Check here for the ABC affiliate closest to you.
