The Real Hicks

An update from  yesterdays A Moonbat Hero is Something to Be

Sounds more believable than Hicks’s own self-serving tosh:

CONVICTED terrorism supporter David Hicks tried to hit guards and threw faeces at them in Guantanamo Bay, a retired US army general says.

Retired US Army Reserve major Montgomery Granger has launched a scathing attack on Hicks and publisher Random House over Hicks’ book Guantanamo: My Journey, which was released last Saturday.

Mr Granger, author of Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay: A Memoir of a Citizen Warrior, said Hicks was infamous at Guantanamo for “threatening to kill an American” and that the content of his book was “lies”.

“David Hicks was there when I was there – he threatened and abused guards, and this is in my book,” he said. “He’s an al-Qaida-trained terrorist mercenary, and will try and pose himself as an innocent victim of circumstance. His book will be lies.”    (Andrew Bolt: The more believable Hicks)

    Do the Bad Guys Always Get the Press? Turning the Table on a Terrorist
    In April of 2010, the Strategic Book Group published a non-fiction work by US Army Reserve Major Montgomery J. Granger, entitled Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay – A Memoir of a Citizen Warrior. Major Granger found himself the ranking Army Medical Department officer in a joint military operation that was like no other before it; his job was taking care of alleged terrorists, just months following 9/11. His autobiography of that time provides not only insights into what life was really like at Gitmo, but a moving portrayal of how he kept his dignity and morality intact, and despite hatred felt on both sides, preserved the same for the detainees. Not much notice was taken by the media. But when Random House Australia decides to publish a book by self-proclaimed terrorist David Hicks, it is front page news.

    What’s a publicist to do? Strike back. Strategic Book Group has issued a series of press releases, on behalf of Major Granger, calling out Mr. Hicks and Random House’s decision to publish the work of a man who landed on the tarmac at Guantanamo and vowed to kill an American soldier during his detention. Admittedly, this was done from the dual prongs of moral outrage and a bid to claim equal attention for our author’s more worthy work. Our headlines therefore included: It appears Random House does think crime pays. Is Random House supporting terrorists? Can you believe a book written by a convicted terrorist? Incendiary? We hoped so. Response was immediate, and overwhelmingly positive, in support of Major Granger’s stance, and his book.

    The ensuing articles, Twitter discussion and posts on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Montgomery-J-Granger-Fan-Page-Strategic-Boo…) have put Major Montgomery and Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay in the spotlight, where he belongs.

  2. If Hicks tried to kill somebody at Guantanamo why wasn’t he charged with that? The grossly abusive nature of the overall system set up at the WOT prisons by the Bush Administration, and the retaliation of prisoners throwing by throwing waste have both been documented. Hicks is far from being the only former Gtmo inmate to tell his story by various means and he’s entitled to do that and surely the publisher is entitled to publish it, providing whatever law exists about the distribution of the proceeds is followed. Are you suggesting that somehow these people should be prevented from ever speaking or writing about their experiences at all, regardless of the proceeds issue? I understood the point of the law was to prevent people from making a profit, not to prevent them from ever saying anything about their experience.

  3. “Are you suggesting that somehow these people should be prevented from ever speaking or writing about their experiences at all, regardless of the proceeds issue?”

    I am suggesting that traitors to their country, culture and civilization, renegades and enemy combatants like Hicks should be swiftly executed within 48 hours of being captured.

  4. Blog reader: I was at Guantanamo and know Hicks lies

    Andrew Bolt – Saturday, October 23, 10 (01:43 pm)

    Yesterday I blogged on the attack launched on convicted terrorism supporter David Hicks and his self-serving book Guantanamo: My Journey by retired US Army Reserve major Montgomery Granger.

    Granger served in Guantanamo and said Hicks was infamous there for “threatening to kill an American”:

    David Hicks was there when I was there – he threatened and abused guards, and this is in my book…He’s an al-Qaida-trained terrorist mercenary, and will try and pose himself as an innocent victim of circumstance. His book will be lies.
    He now writes to us in response to readers’ comments yesterday:
    To be clear, my book, “Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay: A Memoir of a Citizen Warrior,” was published in April, 2010. Second, it is a journal I kept while at Gitmo in 2002, framed by some of my opinions and some facts. As a journal, it is full of very personal thoughts and feelings never intended for public eyes when written.

    Am I proud of everthing I thought and felt while at Gitmo? No.

    Am I proud of the way I and 99.9% of my colleagues performed our duties for the care and treatment of the detainees? Absolutely.

    In it for the money? Not hardly.

    They say your first book is a book of passion, and your second book is the one that makes money. I get about .50 cents per copy sold.

    I wrote the book because I became angry and finally fed up with distorted depictions of what goes on at Gitmo. I knew better and wanted to get the real story out there for those who might benefit from it, namely, U.S. military and their families, who are the target audience for the book.

    Although I have only read excerpts from David Hicks’ book, they were enough to remind me that the resistance and disruption training Hicks received as an al Qaeda fighter, including the mantra: “tell lies about how you are treated,” is still alive and well in his psyche. The things he tells in the excerpts about how he was treated are untrue. One of my main jobs at Gitmo was to ensure U.S. Army, Department of Defense, and Geneva Convention procedures, regulations, and laws were upheld to the very highest standard, and indeed they were, with very few minor exceptions.

    I don’t know how much David Hicks might make on the book, but I assure you that Random House, AUS will make the lion’s share, and I think all of it should go to victims of terror, and to the Australian and U.S. governments to cover the cost of David Hicks incarceration.

  5. Sheik, I agree that Hicks and his Muslim Terrorist co conspirators should have been executed where they stood. Terrorist Hicks and his Muslim comrades have no rights under international law and are not subject the the Geneva Convention simply put he and his new best friends are legally liable to be shot on sight, he and his co religionists are TERRORISTS.

    Terrorist’s Hicks and his cheer squads new book : It will be well worth the effort to compare this new Terrorist Hicks propaganda piece with his and his supporters SBS, Australian Taxpayer funded Documentary on his Muslim Terrorist activities entitled ‘The President Vs’s David Hicks”
    This Australian Taxpayer funded PR support documentary has examples of Terrorist Hicks BOASTING of his terrorist activities in Afghanistan in letters to his Terry Hicks featured throughout the Documentary, I can only assume that when his supporters made this documentary they were of the belief that Islam was in fact going to rule the world and that “Their David” would be soon liberated from his cell by an invading SBS / ACTU /ABC /ALP funded Islamic terrorist army.

    I know that the “professional Australian” aka. Dick Smith, was, according to Smith, “unable to sleep ” whilst Terrorist Hicks was in captivity, I have not been able to find any similar statements from Smith where he alluded to insomnia following the thousands killed at 911, Bali 1 , Bali 2, Madrid, London… hey maybe he was busy importing more Chinese made electronics into Australia and had not heard of these Islamic terrorism events.

    Last I heard Terrorist Hicks was working at Australian Native Landscapes located in the Sydney suburb of Terry Hills, just down the road from guess who ? you got it!!! the “professional Australian” aka. Dick Smith aka. the man who “could not sleep” whilst Terrorist Hicks was incarcerated.

    “This bag of potting mix is 100% Halal and mixed according to” OUR David’s,” aka.. Terrorist Hicks, secret recipe”

    Well maybe it will work,who know’s, so long as Dick is able to sleep at night after all what the Fuck else matters ay?
