Talkleft reports on Feds Move to Block Jose Padilla Subpoenas. At issue are the Navy’s records of what they did to Padilla for the three years they had unfettered power over him.
Whatever the outcome of this motion, it is essential that this information be made public in some way — Congressional hearings? — so that the public can be reminded why the Bill of Rights is so crucial to our freedom. Because I suspect that the Navy did not even come close to complying with it.
