Thin! I Wouldn't Be Wanting To Skate On It: Padilla

Thin to say the least.

"I'm sure the government lawyers are sweating quite a bit right now."...........

President Bush declared him an enemy combatant, and the military held him for 3 ½ years. Just before the administration had to justify that decision to the Supreme Court, he was transferred to civilian custody and added in late 2005 to the Miami terrorism support case. more .

That's strange, I thought it was Fox News.
