AG Eric Holder Admits 9 Attorneys of Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) officials worked for Terrorist Detainees
WAR ON TERROR???
You might want to file the following under you have go to be kidding me or why am I not surprised.
You ever wonder why you don’t feel safe and secure that the Obama Administration is handling the war on terror properly? How is the following possible in a post 9-11 world and why are the American people tolerating this from their government? You might want to remember this at election time.
NINE TIMES … NUMBER NINE … NUMBER NINE … NUMBER NINE
The Washington Examiner reports that Barack Hussein Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder has stated that nine DOJ appointees have represented or advocated for terrorist detainees prior to joining the Department of Justice. WHAT! However, Holder does not provide the names of these individuals. Holder also went on to say that these individuals are able to work on general detainee matters, even if there are specific parts of some cases they cannot be involved in. So much for recusing them self.
Attorney General Eric Holder says nine Obama appointees in the Justice Department have represented or advocated for terrorist detainees before joining the Justice Department. But he does not reveal any names beyond the two officials whose work has already been publicly reported. And all the lawyers, according to Holder, are eligible to work on general detainee matters, even if there are specific parts of some cases they cannot be involved in.
Holder’s admission comes in the form of an answer to a question posed last November by Republican Sen. Charles Grassley. Noting that one Obama appointee, Principal Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal, formerly represented Osama bin Laden’s driver, and another appointee, Jennifer Daskal, previously advocated for detainees at Human Rights Watch, Grassley asked Holder to give the Senate Judiciary Committee “the names of political appointees in your department who represent detainees or who work for organizations advocating on their behalf…the cases or projects that these appointees work with respect to detainee prior to joining the Justice Department…and the cases or projects relating to detainees that have worked on since joining the Justice Department.”
How is it possible that these individuals who have represented the terrorist enemy are now supposed to be advocating against the same people (terrorist vermin) that they represented? As stated by the Astute Blogger … Holder needs to be fired by Obama and Obama needs to be fired by the American people or impeached ASAP. How could Obama say he is defending and protecting the Constitution of the United States with an AG’s office made up of defenders of terrorists.
In his response, Holder has given Grassley almost nothing. He says nine Obama political appointees at the Justice Department have advocated on behalf of detainees, but did not identify any of the nine other than the two, Katyal and Daskal, whose names Grassley already knew. “To the best of our knowledge,” Holder writes,
during their employment prior to joining the government, only five of the lawyers who serve as political appointees in those components represented detainees, and four others either contributed to amicus briefs in detainee-related cases or were otherwise involved in advocacy on behalf of detainees.
Holder says other Obama appointees, like Holder himself, came from law firms which represented detainees but did no work on behalf of the terrorist prisoners. But other than Katyal and Daskal, Holder does not reveal any names of any Obama appointees, nor does he mention the cases they worked on.
With a DOJ like this, is it any wonder why they are going after CIA agents and making decisions to try terrorist like KSM in civilian court rather than military tribunals?
