Last Thursday, the federal government offered to allow the lawyers for suspected "dirty bomber" Jose Padilla to meet with their client for the first time since he was put in a military prison nearly two years ago. The move is a sharp about-face for the Bush administration, which until now has repeatedly claimed that national security would be compromised if Padilla, an American citizen, were allowed to see his lawyers.
