Haneef

eureka
The AFP has finally admitted that there's not enough evidence to make a case against Mohammed Haneef. Or to put it in more honest terms, he's not guilty of anything. The AFP spent $8000000 trying to find something, anything to hang on this poor bloke. Who's $8000000? Ours of course. There's a lot of public good eight million could buy, instead it was wasted by fools too proud to admit they were wrong. And that's not counting the compensation payout the doctor is almost certain to get.

The AFP is only partly to blame of course. They were just following orders and they, and their government bosses were caught by changes in public opinion. Maybe a year earlier the Australian public would have been howling for Mr Haneef's blood and damn his innocence. But sanity had already returned and this Liberal party PR stunt backfired on them.

There should be more than an apology, people should be hung out to dry over this one. Remember then Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews deporting Mr Haneef after his initial release? How Mr Andrews claimed he had evidence that Mr Haneef was guilty, he just couldn't tell anyone what it was? Disgusting behaviour that needs to be punished in my opinion.

Nothing will happen and Kevin Andrews will go back to drinking the blood of babies.

I always wonder just HOW they spend so much annoying just one guy.

What's that kind of enquiry we always have that doesn't go anywhere but makes people forget and stop complaining?

Anyways, let's do one of them (whatever they're called).

Royal Commission. There's quite a few of those we need to have, with some real terms of reference.
