- "Jose Padilla, a larger-than-life symbol for the Bush administration's war on terrorism, was found guilty along with two others yesterday on charges of plotting to support Islamic extremists overseas, reports the Miami Herald. It took jurors just 11 hours to reach unanimous verdicts, despite a complex body of evidence that included hundreds of FBI phone wiretaps introduced during the three-month federal trial. Padilla was charged with serving as an al Qaeda recruit; he and two other men from a South Florida- based terror cell, will be sentenced Dec. 5."
