Jose Padilla

Debra Saunders, after describing Jose Padilla's violent and deceitful past:

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments against holding Padilla, critics like to dismiss his jailers as law-and-order fanatics. They've turned U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft into such a caricature — read right-wing nut — that they can't imagine Mr. Ashcroft actually might want to save innocent people's lives. In their world, Mr. Ashcroft is dangerous, but Padilla is not.
