Jose Padilla Guilty#1

This may be a defining moment in the "war" on terrorism. This man was initially suspected of planning a "dirty bomb." But, this was not part of the government's case. To me, the early verdict indicates not guilty.

I think the defense strategy of not putting on a case is very, very risky. Honestly, I haven't followed the case all that closely, but having sat on juries, they can be very skeptical of this strategy, despite whatever instructions they may receive.

Jose Padilla will become a poster boy for how Bush F*CKed up the war on terror.

"...FBI agents testified that the telephone conversations were often in code, with "football" or "tourism" meaning "jihad" and words such as "zucchini" and "eggplant" meaning weapons or ammunition. Yet Padilla was never heard using such code, testimony showed...."

Well, then, justice was served the American way: He was convicted by a juror of his peers.

A jury's decision is final.

Unless your name is Scooter.

This confirms what horror of this administration. They could've given him a fair trial and convicted him fairly instead of the sham of all the illegal secret prisons that these morons devised and ruining the integrity of the United States and all of the post 9/11 support we had.

I would guess that Jose Padilla caused no harm to any human by his deeds and will now sit in a Bush jail, dazed and confused by the abuse that the United States Government inflicted upon his person!

maybe you can go spend some time with him, brd, and ease his mind about why a jury of his peers chose to convict him. i'm sure he'd be glad for the company. heck, you can probably even get a conjugal visit and let him take out his anger at the united states on your colon. you'll both feel better after.
