As you no doubt have heard "Dirty Bomb" supsect Jose Padilla has been indicted.
At http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,1280,-5432762,00.html, Associated Press summarizes the indictment as follows:
"Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen held in a Navy brig as an enemy combatant for more than three years, was charged Tuesday with being part of a North American terror cell that sent money and recruits overseas to `murder, maim and kidnap.' However, absent from the indictment were the sensational allegations made earlier by top Justice Department officials: that Padilla sought to blow up U.S. hotels and apartment buildings and planned an attack on America with a radiological `dirty bomb.'''
