The Padilla precedent
LRC says some of what I thought when I heard the news
I have no brief for José Padilla as an individual; he appears to be a standard-issue street thug who got the standard prison upgrade to minor-league Muslim fanatic.
Who it turned out wasn’t trying to stage another 9/11. But the state has its scapegoat much like it did with poor, indulged (by his parents), deluded John Walker Lindh.
