Talk about secrecy!! Press black out in Guantanamo

I suppose Australian readers have been on the edge of their seats regarding news of developments in the Hicks' case - or not, as the case may be.

Regardless, in the interest of transparency, all might be interested to know that the twelve Australian journalists in Guantanamo Bay to report the details, have had to get their information - wait for it - from Canberra.

We haven't so far seen this reported in the Australian media, but this story "Newshounds can't get scent in Guantanamo: Australian's there to cover compatriot's trial end up getting their stories from back home", appeared in the Los Angeles Times on Thursday.

The almost final resolution of the Hicks' story is one the Australian Government has been keen to get out there.
