lawyer who came to prominence for his full-throated defense of a subsequently convicted terrorist was quietly promoted to the No. 3 slot at the Department of Justice last month, a post that puts him in charge of the administration’s policy regarding Guantanamo Bay detainees.
The move has raised red flags on Capitol Hill and elsewhere among national security stalwarts who argue that the promotion could imperil the country’s longstanding war on terrorism.
The Obama administration appointee at the center of the debate is Tony West, a longtime Justice Department lawyer who received national attention for his aggressive defense of John Walker Lindh, the so-called American Taliban who is currently serving 20-years in prison for colluding with al Qaeda in Afghanistan and taking up arms against U.S. troops.
Accoring to Citizen Wells, West represented Obama in his efforts to keep his records sealed. West also said (according to J. Christian Adams) that Ratboy "would have a lot to offer" after he gets out of jail. West was appointed earlier this year in charge of GITMO policy.
I wonder if West the terrorist defender is one of those looking to send the Blind Sheikh back to the Muslim Brotherhood as a peace offering.
Nothing like having the foxes guarding the henhouse. That's why it is called the InJustice Department under racists Richard Milhous Obama and Eric Holder.
