Just who was working for a foreign power contrary to law?

OVER the past fortnight or so I’ve made two or three disparaging references to the arrest of former Marine Corp fighter pilot Daniel Duggan and his incarceration in a terrorist’s cell in the maximum security Lithgow prison. Duggan, 54, hasn’t been charged with anything. He was indicted in 2017 by that storied bane of the ham sandwich – a US grand jury – for allegedly committing American national security crimes more than ten years ago by training Chinese pilots. That’s in addition, per custom, to other decorative and improbable offences. The Australian citizen is a father of six small children with an unblemished military and civilian record; unlike, say, the President of the United States who is known to have accepted and secreted millions of dollars in bribes from the CCP. The case pongs like Hunter Biden’s motel doona after a week-long crack binge. Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus – who last week railed grubbily against imaginary Nazi associations – approved the arrest at the behest of the notorious FBI. Last week, Duggan’s 95-year-old mother died in Boston. He will not be at the funeral. I looked up Anne Duggan’s death notice and wasn’t surprised. If her son is a Chinese agent, I’m J. Edgar Hoover. No surprise either that this caper is now under investigation itself by the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security.

    At some stage, Joe Biden will have to admit to it all so he can pardon his son.

  2. Eyrie says:

    Australian citizen in jail without being charged with a crime. We are better than the CCP or former USSR, how?

    By the way, the only other country in the world that still uses grand juries is Liberia.

  4. Buccaneer says:

    Liberia was created by US citizens based on the US model of government and jurisprudence, so that is not a surprise.

    There’s another SAS guy they are going after … Oliver Schulz.

    Seems totally weird that after years of leaky leaks and ongoing trial, all designed to destroy the life of Ben Roberts-Smith … suddenly a total pivot and hunt down a different guy.

    I’m sure the story makes sense to someone.
