From the Wash Post:
President Bush does not have power to detain American citizen Jose Padilla, the former gang member seized on U.S. soil, as an enemy combatant, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.
The decision could force the government to try Padilla, held in a so-called "dirty bomb" plot, in civilian courts.
Whole thing here.
Padilla is nobody's idea of a hero, but his treatment has been outrageous from the get-go.
