Our friend The Talking Dog has an interview with Donna Newman, who's defending Jose Padilla (the "dirty bomber"). Her story is chilling. Apparently the government wants to keep Padilla (an American citizen) in jail indefinitely, without charges and without a trial.
There are so many bad things about the Bush administration that the civil liberties aspects tend to be forgotten. This kind of arbitrary exercise of power is exactly what the Declaration of Independence was talking about.
