As an American citizen, Jose Padilla should be charged and tried. I hope he rots in his prison cell - better yet, I hope he gets his 'eternal justice' from some of the other prisoners. I'm not familiar with what this is. Could you please eloborate? I disagree. There is still due process in America, Jose Padilla's case notwithstanding. If there is legal wrangling over Padilla's status as an al-Qaeda member vs. American citizen, that's one thing. But it's not like habeus corpus has been suspended, or that people are being thrown in jail for no reason.
