Double Standards?

Good post by Steve on Al-Qaeda in South Africa and the denial surrounding our involvement in the badly named "war on terror".

Now two South Africans have been arrested in Pakistan for allegedly being members of Al-qaeda.

Of interest however is the response of the South African government to their arrests.

South African foreign affairs officials are trying to gain access to the pair to confirm their identities.

"Our mission has asked to visit these men in prison with an aim of establishing whether they are South Africans," foreign affairs spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said.

How long did it take for the SA government to respond to the plight of the SA men in Equatorial guinea and Zimbabwe? Why the sudden haste?
