As it turned out, the Govt. chose not to use some of it's most convincing evidence and therefore could not even charge Padilla with the most serious crime that he committed.
    Who was Padilla connected with? He wasn't his own operative, certainly.

It's a terrible mess!

    I'm glad I came here too. This has been an interesting discussion with intelligent people who seem to have real jobs! :) (Sorry, I couldn't resist that.)
    :D We're not all like Eyelids.

    DU doesn't want their members to come here, as they'd see that for the most part, we are logical and fair.

    Welcome, Elspeth!!
    Hope that you enjoy your experience here!
    It would appear (reading your DU post) that you were not well-accepted there.
    From my own limited experience here, you have entered into a wonderfully open forum, here!

    Again, Welcome!!

    It is a wonderful board but political posts are not allowed in the Lounge. We have several other forums for that. Since the restoration my powers have been erratic and I can't move this thread to where it belongs. Please don't post politics here.

    It disturbs the Force.

    Thank you, and, no, I wasn't well accepted there. It kind of surprised me. There's a gang mentality over there and I think I fell afoul of them early on. What bothered me most is that they could call me almost any name, no matter how reasonable or polite I was. Yet I was the one who got threads locked. I never quite understood that, except that the certain cliques with time on their hands must have alerted on every one of my posts. I would ask the mods why things were removed and, usually, get no answer.

    I am sorry I posted in the wrong place. I was trying to introduce myself and didn't quite know where to put things. I am loathe to disturb the Force, so I will follow your instructions to the letter. :)

    Thanks.

    That's okay, you're new. We try to confine the Lounge to severed penis stories, beer antics, the weather, and extramarital affairs. :p

    Hopefully, we will have all our former forums restored shortly including the fabled Welcome Wagon.

    Ah, I see. My thread doesn't quite fit that description. :)

    A Welcome Wagon is actually a nice idea. It's hard to get to know people when you're new.
