Padilla: A Triumph of American Justice

Video linked in title; transcript here.

I know it's really hard for some people to separate whatever real-world crimes Padilla may be guilty of (who knows, given how the case has been handled) from the rule of law. You know, that little thing. Even Nazis got due process at Nuremberg; why not Padilla?

This is truly horrifying -- the whole story of Padilla's arrest, incarceration, torture, and prosecution.

This is an American citizen, recall. What prevents any American citizen from getting the same treatment? The good will of the federal government? I have a bridge in Brooklyn for you if you believe that -- and please don't claim you're a "conservative."
