Smacked by hypocrisy

I was driving home tonight listening to PM on the ABC with Kim Beazley talking about John Howard's visit to Indonesia. To paraphrase, Kim is disappointed with John Howard (admittedly, so am I for many reasons) for not being strong enough in his demands to Indonesia to restrict or curtail the movements of Abu Bakar Bashir. See the full story here - http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200606/s1673211.htm

Is this the same Opposition Leader who objects to Indonesia telling Australia how to formulate immigration policy?

Surely, on the one hand, demanding one government stay out of Australian affairs and policy, and then on the other hand objecting to insufficient interference in the affairs of the same sovereign country smacks of hypocrisy.
