Diaz files second cert petition

This showed up on the Supreme Court's docket today:

No. 06-9977
Title: Salvador Diaz, Petitioner
United States

Docketed: March 13, 2007
Lower Ct: United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces
Case Nos.: (05-0500/NA)
Decision Date: September 11, 2006
Rehearing Denied: October 11, 2006

~~~Date~~~ ~~~~~~~Proceedings and Orders~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dec 22 2006 Application (06A795) to extend the time to file a petition for a writ of certiorari from January 9, 2007 to March 10, 2007, submitted to The Chief Justice.
Feb 15 2007 Application (06A795) granted by The Chief Justice extending the time to file until March 10, 2007.
Mar 5 2007 Petition for a writ of certiorari and motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis filed. (Response due April 12, 2007)

As previously noted, a cert petition had already been filed on Diaz's behalf and the Supreme Court has already denied that cert petition. See Craig v. United States, 127 S. Ct. 1141 (2007) (order denying certiorari).

We haven't been wagering lately, any takers on the odds that Diaz goes to the World Court or the ICC next?

Maybe he should go to a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, or get psychological help for his addiction to extraordinary writs.

Would the credibility of the writs be in better standing if Diaz was not proceeding as pro se? By just glancing at the original appeal, I notice the basis of denial is usual arguable, atleast by my opinion.
