You won't BELIEVE who's hacked off with the Bushies these days.

Just when you think the Bush administration can't become any more of a complete clusterfuck than it already is, it manages to piss off what is almost certainly the most conservative appellate court in the U.S. Go read:

"The government has held Padilla militarily for three and a half years, steadfastly maintaining that it was imperative in the interest of national security that he be so held. However, a short time after our decision issued on the government’s representation that Padilla’s military custody was indeed necessary in the interest of national security, the government determined that it was no longer necessary that Padilla be held militarily..."

In short, the 4th Circuit Court feels thoroughly snookered, and they are not happy about it.
