A federal judge in Miami ordered a mental exam to determine whether Jose Padilla charged with being part of a support cell for Islamic extremists worldwide is competent for trial. A psychiatrist and a psychologist hired by his lawyers concluded he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental problems stemming largely from his 3 years in solitary confinement at a Navy brig in Charleston, S.C.
Padilla, 36, claims he was tortured, a charge denied by prosecutors and Pentagon officials. Padilla and co-defendants Adham Amin Hassoun and Kifah Wael Jayyousi have pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and material support charges. Trial is set for Jan. 22.
