Nothing in the Four Corners show last night caused me to change my view that Mohammed Haneef was the subject of an entirely reasonable investigation by Australian authorities earlier this year. Liz Jackson carried out a superb, probing interview for the show.
To be clear Mr. Haneef on appearence seems a decent young man who got caught up in a Kafkaesque nightmare. But his stated reasons for leaving Australia, his close association with two known terrorists and his statements during internet chat room sessions make him a plausible suspect.
I also thought the Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews handled the issue with propriety and implemented the Immigration Act correctly.
