Because freedom can't protect itself
I grew up with Jose Padilla we attended the same grammar school and lived in the same neighborhood.we were in the same classroom for fifth and six grade. he was quite but he would participate with rest of us playing football,softball any other activity.never saw him get in trouble for anything.after we graduated and went on to high school i lost touch with him.later on i ran into him at a party and we talked i asked how he was doing he said good.didnt see anything different about him.we were adults already he was the same old laid back pucho that i knew thats the name that we called him.to me he is not an enemy combatant like they are saying.the bush administration use Jose as a scape goat.BUSH flew the Osamas out the country when when the 911 happen what do you call that.it sounds to me like aiding the real terrorist.im sorry for Jose and his family that they got caught up in this ordeal.i pray for you that one day someone in our government will see that you are innocent.
