Padilla Verdict

Finally -- justice! Er, sort of. John Cole at Balloon Juice lays it out very nicely here in his round up.

I would only add that the way this case was handled - from beginning to end - should plant a few doubts in the minds of everyone who believes that our constitutional rights (and the laws that spring from them) are central to this democracy. When such laws become 'optional' based on the executive interpretation of how they should be implemented, we are truly fucked.
