My Son The Terrorist
Today’s Age reports the following:
The father of an Australian imprisoned by the US military for allegedly fighting with the Taliban shut himself in a wire cage on a New York street today to highlight his son’s plight.
“I wouldn’t even keep a dog like this,” Terry Hicks said, referring to his son David’s incarceration for the past 19 months at the US military detention camp at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
“I have a dire need to speak to David eye-to-eye. My main worry is his mental state,” Hicks said.
It seems that Terry Hicks now has concerns about David’s mental state now that his son is imprisoned by the US military. I would have thought his mental state would have been an issue after he converted to Islam, went to Pakistan and Afghanistan, fought for the Taliban and trained with Al-Qaeda.
