Indeed, David Hicks has pleaded guilty before an US Military Tribunal. In doing so, he has accepted the legitimacy of the tribunal process.
His guilty plea acknowledges his acceptance of his actions as, according to the definition of the tribunal, terrorism and traitor.
I do not resile from my previous question of the process and it's inherent lack of fairness and justice.
I accept that by his own words, David Hicks has declared himself to be these things, and as such, should be condemned by the world.
Did this advance the cause of justice? I think not. Did David Hicks accept, for whatever reason, the process? I think so.
Does it make the process right? History will tell.
beware of fundamentalists
