So a federal court says that the Bush administration can hold Jose Padilla - a US citizen suspected of terroristic activity indefinitely without benefit of a trial. Why would they want to hold him? Listen to this:
At the heart of the White House argument to keep a half-dozen terror figures in permanent lockup was its fear that a trial could result in their acquittals and permit them to return home and wage a violent campaign against the United States.

So we can't try him because a court might find him...not guilty? But if that happens, shouldn't be be allowed to go about his business? Did I wake up in Russia this morning?
