Our treacherous regime at work. This is one of scores of subversive and dangerous appointments by an adminstration at war with America.
Taliban Defense Attorney now No. 3 at Obama DOJ
In a scary development, a major Obama fundraiser who defended a convicted al Qaeda terrorist will become the third highest ranking official at the Department of Justice (DOJ), which, ironically, is charged with defending the interests of the United States.
Northern California lawyer Tony West has been named Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division, making him the No. 3 guy at the agency. In 2009 West, who helped Obama raise tens of millions of dollars as finance co-chairman of his first presidential campaign, was appointed to help run the DOJs civil division which represents the government, Congress and presidential cabinet officers and handles cases dealing with significant policy issues.
In a statement announcing the promotion this week, Attorney General Eric Holder says West has served the department with professionalism, integrity and dedication. Holder also mentions Wests work before coming to the DOJ a few years ago, including a stint as a Special Assistant Attorney General in California and a lengthier career at a large San Francisco law firm.

this guy is bigtime slime, very important article!
It needed a real housecleaning after Clinton, but we didn't get it. He left a Judiciary and DOJ full of politically loyal appointees. How many times have we seen WTF legal decisions from Clinton judges?
Absent thorough cleansing, which brings its own problems, politically motivated appointments have lingering effects. GWB didn't clean things up; traditionally Dems are more thorough in this area when they come to power, leading to the cumulative damage we all complain about.
There is a really simple solution to all of these Obama administration problems. Newt Gingrich and 24 hours. 24 hours for all of the czars and Obama appointees to have their bags packed and of course searched the way the Clintons should have been searched.
The GOPers/RINOs leave so much lib-dem/RINO “dirt” in-place, that it’s thigh-deep now. It’s going to take an industrial-grade ShopVac to rid the place of all the crap which abounds in all the nooks & crannies. I’d rather deal with the “lingering problems of a thorough cleansing”, but I’m afraid we’ll never see it.
One can dream, can’t one?
There is really only one party that can be blamed for this: G O P! They act like a bunch of scared five year olds.
GOPers = RINOs = cowards.
“...scared five year olds.” I can think of a couple of 3-4 year olds, who could kick their cowering GOPer/RINO/Statist butts.
yep classic wuuus bait..
