The Imprisonment of Jose Padilla

What Glenn said:
The most astounding and disturbing fact over the last five years -- and there is a very stiff competition for that title -- is that we have collectively really just sat by while the U.S. Government arrests and detains people, including U.S. citizens, and then imprisons them for years without any charges of any kind. What does it say about our country that not only does our Government do that, but that we don't really seem to mind much?
And here is the New York Times article describing a videotape of Jose Padilla being taken to a dentist.

The day is coming when there will be an accounting for the government's behavior in this case.
