Enemy combatant

If you (like me) haven't been following the Jose Padilla saga, this New York Times article is a good way to catch up.

After reading the article, I remain concerned about the idea of detaining a US citizen in this way. I can see where something like this might be necessary for national security, but I hope the courts impose oversight requirements of some kind. Especially since the "wartime" used to justify such detentions is likely to go on indefinitely.
