News John Howard caught lying yet again

  1. Jun 2, 2004 #1
    It turns out that Australia's military has observers involved with the USA-run prisons in Iraq, and knew what was going on there long before the story broke. Now John Howard is claiming he never knew anything, that the defence force kept it all secret, and he's completely innocent. He's placing the blame on defence personnel, saying they misled him.

    Now, Australians may remember the Tampa affair. Almost identical in method, that was. Howard shifted the blame then in the exact same manner.

    For those overseas, you may or may not be aware that John Howard is not at all trusted here. Nobody believes a word he says. He is the first ever Australian PM to be hit with a vote of no confidence (over the Iraq invasion).
