Barack Hussein Obama has nomined San Francisco Bay Area attorney Tony West as assistant attorney general in charge of the civil division of the Justice Department.
Tony West, a high-powered San Francisco lawyer whose clients have ranged from corporate giants to "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh, has been nominated by President Obama as an assistant attorney general in charge of the Justice Department's Civil Division.
...While representing companies in civil and criminal cases, he has also served as a lawyer for Mark Klein, the former AT&T technician who testified that the telecommunications company was sharing customers' phone calls and e-mails with federal agents in the Bush administration's electronic surveillance program.
West was co-counsel for former Oakland Raiders receiver Marcus Williams, who in 2005 won $340,000 in damages from ex-teammate Bill Romanowski for punching him during practice.
He also took part in the defense of Lindh, the Marin County man who was a 20-year-old Taliban soldier in Afghanistan when he was captured in November 2001. Lindh pleaded guilty in 2002 to serving in the Taliban army and carrying weapons and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
West, who ran unsuccessfully for a state Assembly seat in San Jose in 2000, has acknowledged that the Lindh case dampened his political prospects, but said it was the kind of work he believed in.
And what kind of work is that, representing traitors?
ONE PREDICTION I WILL MAKE which seems quite probable in the wake of our national surrender in the War on Terror by the Obama Administration and illustrated by the nomination of West as well as the previous post below. John Walker Lindh, aka "Ratboy," "Johnny Jihad" from Marin County will be, at the very least, given clemency by the terrorist friendly Eric Holder and Obama by the end of this year at the earliest, if not by the end of his regime. Don't forget also that the traitor's permissive father, Frank Lindh, gave two donations to Obama last year.
