Scott Parking, the USian peace activist, that was removed from Australia because he is supposed to be a threat to our national security has been handed a bill for his stay in gaol and his deportation back to the US.
There has to be more going on behind the scenes in ASIO and the federal government than we have been told. This guy was very vocal in his opposition to the war in Iraq and against Halliburton, the US company that holds most of the military supply and reconstruction contracts in Iraq.
Did the US have a quiet word to ASIO about this guy in an attempt to shut him up?
Or were ASIO more concerned that he might give some loony the motivation to bomb something?
I think we should be told the complete story.
