“When US forces captured David Hicks in Afghanistan, I had been the ABC's Washington Correspondent for all of one week. If you'd told me then that four years later, I'd be packing up my posting to return home and David Hicks would still be a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay awaiting trial, I would never have believed it.” – Leigh Sales

Three months after the September 11 terrorist attacks in the US, 26 year old Australian David Hicks was captured amongst Taliban forces in Afghanistan and handed over to the Americans who detained him indefinitely at the newly created - now notorious - US prison camp at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.
