CONFESSED terrorist supporter David Hicks is in good spirits...Terrorist supporter?
In Hicks's own words:
"Every night there is an exchange of fire. I got to fire hundreds of rounds. There are not many countries in the world where a tourist can go and stay with the army and shoot across the border at its enemy, legally."It wasn't legally. It was when:
...he spent a considerable time with the Pakistani based terror group Lashkar-e-Toiba. LET is one of the most vicious and murderous terrorist groups in the world. It has killed many people and has made frequent attempts to kill Australians.Even if LET wasn't a terrorist group, Hicks would still be guilty of being a mercenary, something which is illegal in Australia and is treated the same as child sex tourism - you can be busted for it on your return to these shores.
Further, Hicks has joined:
...four separate terrorist groups - the Kosovo Liberation Army, Lashkar-e-Toiba, the Taliban and al-Qa'ida.Terrorist supporter?
Just plain terrorist would do, if journalists lived in the real world.
