Hicks Heads for the Land Down Under...

David Hicks is scheduled to fly to Australia, perhaps as early as next week, to serve his perfunctory nine-month jail sentence.

Hicks' attorneys did a good job with their client's plea bargain. However, that David Hicks must spend any more time in prison after years of isolation, abuse and denial of due process is an outrage.

Part of the Hick's agreement stipulates that he will not speak to the media for the period of one year. The Australian federal elections are in January, very convenient for PM John Howard, Bush's pal in the southern hemisphere.
