Australia's offshore refugees

Stuck for years in remote island detention camps, some who sought asylum in Australia are getting a chance at a new life.

    If you are a refugee and you arrive in Australia by boat, the government will never let you in. Security forces tow away boats, and asylum seekers are sent to detention centres on remote islands. This week on The Take podcast, we meet a doctor-turned-whistleblower who saw what happens in those camps and a refugee who spent nearly five years in one before starting over in the United States.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
