From being a cheap Chicago ganster to a Bin Laden associate and finally a prisoner in a Chicago jail, Jose Padilla has come full circle. Time details Padilla's prodigal run into infamy by delineating his life so far- starting off as a deep Chicago neigbourhood guy, he converted to Islam after his family shifted to Florida. From here, he travelled to Cairo to learn Arabic and finally presented a plon to choke America with an H-Bomb, to Abu Zubaydah in Pakistan. As he was returning to America, Padilla was finally arrested at the airport and is now cooling his heels.
