"Dirty Bomber" Done Dirt Cheap

Jose Padilla has finally been charged with a crime- after three years. This is what I was getting at- how do you lock someone up in a prison and not charge them with a crime for three years, and not have that act call into question the standards of liberty that you live by? How is that possible?

You do it by leaving them in jail until right before the Supreme Court settles the matter then you make the issue moot by charging them with something that you didn't even accuse them of in the first place.

It's just completely alarming. There's little else to say.

But, let me say one good thing about it- the administration had to submit to the Supreme Court. This could bode well.
