Josepadilla

A federal jury in Miami today found Jose Padilla and two co-defendants guilty on all counts.  Washington Post story here.

The government charged the three of aiding al-Qaida and other Islamic extremists overseas.

In May 2002, then Attorney General John Ashcroft accused Padilla of planning to detonate a "dirty bomb" in the U.S.  President Bush designated him an illegal enemy combatant but later withdrew the designation and transferred Padilla from a military brig to a civilian jail.
