Sedated justice

Seeing as David Hicks is being held using the testimony of another tortured Guantanamo Bay prisoner who has since been released and recanted their confession, I would want to be sedated when being informed of the latest window dressing that passes for a justice system in America these days as well

US probes Hicks 'sedated' claim
The US Pentagon is examining allegations that David Hicks, the Australian detainee at Guantanamo Bay, was forcibly sedated last month.
The Pentagon has argued that past claims have often been exaggerated. David Hicks is due to appear before a US military commission next week on a charge of providing military support for terrorism. Ahead of his appearance, protestors in Sydney have unveiled a life-size replica of his cell. This will then go on a national tour of Australia. The allegation that David Hicks was forcibly sedated has come from his US military defence lawyer, Major Michael Mori. He claims the Australian was given medicine last month just before being informed about the new charge levelled against him.
