The Home Team Finally Gets One Right

I have said early and often that the Bush administration's prosecution of suspected terrorists has been puh-thetic. So it is nice to acknowledge an instance in which it seems to have gotten it right.
That would be the case of Iraqi-born Dutch citizen Wesam al-Delaema. Following a two-year battle over his extradition to the U.S., Dealaema has arrived stateside to face charges that he and his pals in a group they callled the Mujahideen from Fallujah conspired to kill Americans abroad.

The evidence seems kind of overwhelming: They videotaped themselves planting bombs on a road used by American forces in Iraq, and the videotape was aired widely on television in the Arab world.
