Torture response

The government has responded to Padilla's claims of torture, denying all of them. Here's the AP story and a brief quote:

"Padilla's conditions of confinement were humane and designed to ensure his safety and security," the government said in its filing. "His basic needs were met in a conscientious manner." That included halal food, some outdoor exercise and medical attention when necessary. Prosecutors said Padilla never made any abuse claims while in military custody. "Padilla's allegations of torture have no merit whatsoever," prosecutors said.

If anyone has the brief, please email it to me and I'll try to post it.
