If he walks, it's on
Padilla has entered his plea:
Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen who was held for more than three years as an "enemy combatant," pleaded not guilty Thursday to criminal charges alleging he was part of a secret network that supported Muslim holy war around the world.
The plea, followed by a judge's refusal to set bail for Padilla, came one week after he was transferred from military to civilian custody.
The plea marks Padilla's first formal answer to any government charge associated with terrorists. His lawyers fought for three years to gain access to the federal courts. "Absolutely not guilty," said Michael Caruso, one of Padilla's Miami lawyers. Padilla did not speak during the hearing.
A lot of people who feed off of the power of government ought to be praying that he's convicted. Because if after all this "dirty bombs!" mess, & him, a U.S. citizen, being held in limbo for years at the behest of the president....mark my words, if the outcome of all this is that a jury finds him innocent, there will be havoc. This is simply too big to ignore, the implications from such would blow the doors open, watch.
