Jose Padilla Suffering From Stress...Anxiety

A doctor reports that alleged al-Qaeda conspirator Jose Padilla suffers from intense stress and anxiety following three-and-a-half years in custody as an "enemy combatant", BBC:

    Dr Hegarty said after a 22-hour examination of the suspect that Mr Padilla had suffered from intense stress and anxiety following three-and-a-half years in custody as an "enemy combatant".

    Mr Padilla claims he was tortured while being held on a brig at Charleston, South Carolina, a charge that officials deny.

    The psychiatrist said Mr Padilla suffered from a facial tic, problems with social contact, lack of concentration and a form of Stockholm Syndrome, by which people in captivity sympathise with their captors.

Whew...that's sad, isn't it? Maybe there's room for him to live in John Edwards' new 10 Million Square Foot Mansion. That would no doubt help purge all that stress and anxiety. Besides, I bet Padilla and Edwards would get along great with each other.
