Keep American Safe, the brainchild of Liz Cheney released a new video Tuesday challenging the loyalties of Justice Department lawyers who "represented or advocated for terrorist detainees" during the Bush administration. . . .Read the entire story.
"Holder has hired lawyers who used to represent terrorists to work in President Obama's Justice Department, and he won't tell the American people who they are," Keep America Safe spokesman Michael Goldfarb told Politico's Ben Smith. "These lawyers did far more than represent criminals. They have propagandized on behalf of our enemies, engaging in a worldwide smear campaign against the CIA, the U.S. military and the United States itself while we are at war" (emphasis mine).
Since when did representing alleged criminals become a bad thing?
Oh, that's right. . . . When Bush II and the Republican-led Congress passed the Military Commissions Act of 2006.
Here's my question: how can Liz Cheney question the loyalties of Justice Department lawyers when it is Cheney herself that either doesn't understand the Constitution or doesn't care what it says?
Hey, Liz: if anyone is the traitor, it is you. That you would subvert the rule of law to keep your father, a war criminal, from being prosecuted is contemptible.
