Jose Padilla will be examined to see if he"is competent for trial."
"A psychiatrist and a psychologist hired by Padilla's attorneys concluded he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental problems stemming largely from his 3 1/2 years in solitary confinement at a Navy brig in Charleston, S.C.
Prosecutors agreed a court-ordered evaluation was necessary."
What a pansy.
Post-traumatic stress disorder caused by 3 1/2 years of solitary confinement is ridiculous.
He's being confined so strictly, that when he was being taken from his cell to the dentist, his eyes and ears were covered to apparently prevent him from blinking in morse code to his fellow conspirators who, as The Anonymous Liberal pointed out, "have probably been lying low for the last three years, patiently waiting for the right sequence of blinks from Padilla to indicate to them that it's time to commence . . . um . . . what exactly? Well, whatever it is, I'm sure it's sinister,"
