Padilla Found Guilty on All Counts in Terror Case – washingtonpost.com

I know the Bushies will never see things this way, but could we please get real here?

Jose Padilla, the Brooklyn-born former street gang member arrested five years ago as a suspected terrorist, was convicted today by a federal jury in Miami along with two co-defendants on charges of supporting al-Qaeda and other violent Muslim extremist groups.

After a day-and-a-half of deliberations following a three-month trial, the jury found that Padilla, 36, joined a cell to provide money and recruits to terrorist groups. Also convicted in the case were Adham Amin Hassoun, 45, a Lebanese-born Palestinian who worked in the United States as a computer programmer, and Kifah Wael Jayyousi, also 45, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Jordan who ran a purported relief organization that prosecutors said provided support to terrorist groups.

Now, doesn’t that sound just a little bit more legitimate than simply declaring a bunch of people "enemy combatants" and keeping them in jail, just for the hell of it?

The answer, of course, is yes…
