Padilla finally indicted

Nevermind those earlier allegations, you know the ones we held you on for over 3 years? I guess this is a way to avoid a Supreme Court showdown. Throw a few things on the wall and hope something sticks.

'Dirty Bomb' Suspect Jose Padilla Indicted
Charges Don't Include Government's Earlier Allegations That He Planned Terror Attacks in the U.S.

Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen held by the Bush administration for three years without charges as an enemy combatant plotting a "dirty bomb" attack in the United States, has been indicted on charges unrelated to any potential terrorist attack in this country.

Padilla, 35, a former Chicago gang member who converted to Islam, was indicted by a Miami federal grand jury Thursday on charges he and four others were part of a U.S.-based terrorism conspiracy to "murder, maim, and kidnap" people overseas, Justice Department officials announced at a press conference in Washington today.
