4th Circuit Court of Appeals Rules against Padilla...

Appeals Court overturns ruling by a Federal Judge on the status of the "dirty bomber" Jose Padilla as an "enemy combatant"

A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the president has the authority to detain a U.S. citizen closely associated with al Qaida.

A federal judge in South Carolina had ruled in March that the government cannot hold Padilla indefinitely as an "enemy combatant," a designation President Bush gave him in 2002.

If he isn't already there, I say send him down to Club Gitmo. Maybe his Al Qaida buddies can talk him into going on a hunger strike.
