Have we heard enough about David Hicks?

That's the question, with an answer, by Chris Kenny, called Close the book on Hicks's tall tales of victimhood, published in The Australian.
As Australians prepare to mark the tenth anniversay or the 9/11 attacks, we should not have to be confronted with special pleading - publicly funded at that - by David Hicks. 
Among almost 3000 casualties from Osama bin Laden's atrocity, there were 11 Australians. More than 100 have been killed in subsequent terrorist attacks in Bali, London, Saudi Arabia, India and elsewhere.
