Absolutely

As noted in today's Age editorial , yes indeed Australia has a great degree of responsibility for dismantling the legal and literal hell hole that is Guantanamo Bay.
It's very easy to for Kevin Rudd to hold up his hands and blame the previous government and it's support of Gitmo, but that does not change what has been done with our nation's support.
What concerns me more is that the Labour Government will house former prisoners and use it as a media opportunity to show how they are putting Howard's way behind them, while leaving in place the draconian anti-terror laws that the Labour Party did indeed support in opposition that allow very simalier things to occur on Australian soil.

Call me cynical...
