Padilla Innocent-Bush Guilty

The Kos kids know all the inside skinny which makes them omnipotent. Well, maybe impotent.

but when the government was forced to produce some probable cause they
dropped the NY criminal process and President Bush declared him an "Enemy
Combatant" and whisked him away to the Naval Brig in South Carolina, where he
was held in solitary confinement without access to legal counsel or the outside
world for 3 years.
Then, when it looked like the Supreme Court would rule
against the government (including Scalia, who, to his credit has ruled that the
government just can't lock up U.S. citizens willy-nilly) they "undeclared" him
"Enemy Combatant" and sent him to Florida to face these (previously unheard)

labyrinthine journey Padilla has traveled thus far.

when you put it all togrther like that, isn't it? Members of the executive
branch truly are above the law. The divine right of kings applies more than the
Constitution does at this point. And the press parades on.
Brilliant synopsis.
Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure
everyone's freedom.

They knew what they were doing and they did it to one of
us. By that, I mean an american citizen.

Breathtaking, we drove Padilla insane just to convict him of crimes he committed. To read Kos' site, why do we need juries when we have this group of superior beings that can read the tea leaves from afar.

The offense

Markos Moulitsas’s hate-site The Daily Kos, the foul-mouthed fem-blog
FiredogLake, and other ‘netroots’ extremists like, have become the
dominant fundraisers for Tom Allen’s senate campaign.
The defense

I don't use the "c" word personally, though I'm hardly a saint on that front
— nothing gets Michelle Malkin's blood boiling faster than to remind her that I
once called Kate O'Beirne "sandpaper snatch." Since that time it's been refined
by the community (thanks to punaise) into "Ole 60 Grit" and it has become
something of blogospheric lore — Jim O'Beirne's notorious hiring of Heritage
Foundation interns for the CPA is now commonly referred to as the "60 Grit
Employment Agency." We are, first and foremost, writers (and artists) here on
this site, and I will not impose limitations on how people can express
themselves here. We test the edges of communication, and in doing so often get
perilously close to the edge and occasionally step over. It's what makes us
exciting, challenging and interesting, in the tradition of Lenny Bruce or Hunter
S. Thompson.

The above is actually tame for Ms. Hamsher which probably disappoints the ghost of Lenny the Bruce.
