Cheney, Howard ‘did deal on Hicks’

From ABC news it appears that our PM John Howard did a deal with US Vice-President Dick Cheney to release former Guantanamo Bay detainee David Hicks. Now, you may not agree with what Hicks did, or did not do, but to have heads of government organising plea bargain deals instead of letting ‘due process’ function is a worry. Especially if the deal was made purely for the political gain of John Howard?
