I have read with disgust the last few days about President Obama’s Justice Department having hired quite a few attorneys that had represented Gitmo detainees directly or had submitted friend-of-the-court briefs supporting the detainees.
The justification of this seems to be well that is what defense attorneys do, they defend bad guys, so this is no big deal….move along…nothing to see here.
That’s crap though.
How many former attorney who had clients involved with organized crime have been hired by the DOJ or appointed as US Attorneys over the years? I would assume 0.
This is because once an attorney becomes an attorney for Organized Crime practitioners they become fundamentally corrupted and can no longer be trusted to represent the interest of the US public. These OC Lawyers can still practice law, they just can not be prosecutors EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE COMMITTED NO CRIMES THEMSELVES.
It is the same thing with lawyers for terrorists.
By having volunteered to become advocates for the interest of terrorists – the interests of enemies of the American Nation – those attorneys can no longer be trusted to represent the interest of the US public.
It is pretty simple. Those lawyers are tainted. I am not saying their law licenses should be pulled, but they should not be DOJ lawyers.
