The Bush Administration's Continued Abrogation of the Constitution

CNN has picked up Jesselyn Radack's FindLaw article on Jose Padilla and Ali Saleh Kahlah al-Marr.

Jose Padilla was the "dirty bomber" picked up in Chicago and has been held for several years without anyc charges being filed in clear contravention of the US Constitution and the Geneva Accords.

Rotten.com has a quick biography of Jose Padilla. Padilla is certainly not a model citizen, and it strikes me that there are several similarities to Aukai Collins' story in My Jihad.

But that doesn't affect how upset I am by the Bush administration's war on civil rights. If these men have committed crimes, charge them with crimes, but to just pretend they don't have Constitutional rights is immoral, and in my view, illegal.
