horror Posted 2002-07-03 09:21:36 by Jim Crawford
Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen accused of discussing the detonation of a radioactive bomb in Washington D.C., is being held indefinitely in military custody as an “enemy combatant,” in a manner, Government Lawyers say, “consistent with the laws and customs of war.” In case you haven't been paying attention, this throws the whole “speedy and public trial” thing right out the window. Not to mention “innocent until proven guilty.”

I wouldn't even bother to mention this, but I haven't noticed much outrage over the matter, just a few cynical comments here and there.

Maybe I should go see what Conan O'Brien has to say about it.

that he's being denied access to the outside world, including access to a lawyer. Also, those "laws and customs of war" are generally accepted because the people are to be released at the end of the war if they haven't been charged with anything (which he hasn't). However, Bush has already said that this war may never end, since there's no way to know if we've won. So there goes that, too. He's truly being held indefinitely.
you know...

He's STILL being held without charge or evidence, as of this day.
