U.S. Details Alleged Padilla Terror Plots The Justice Department releases newly declassified documents about Jose Padilla that it says show he was a dangerous terrorist who plotted with al Qaeda to blow up U.S. apartment buildings, among other things. The government put out the information to justify continuing to detain Padilla, a U.S. citizen, as an "enemy combatant." Padilla's lawyer calls the move an attempt to convict her client without a trial. NPR's Larry Abramson reports.
