Posted on 03/03/2010 12:48:15 PM PST by Captain Kirk
In Liz Cheney's worldview, Rudy Giuliani is a disloyal al Qaeda sympathizer.
Let us explain.
Yesterday, Cheney's outfit, a group called Keep America Safe, went up with a blistering ad that attacked Justice Department lawyers who previously represented Guantanamo detainees and are now working on detainee issues. The ad dubbed the lawyers "the Al Qaeda Seven" and asked "whose values do they share?" while flashing an image of Osama bin Laden.
It turns out that among the many high-profile lawyers who have represented so-called "terrorist detainees" is a top attorney with Rudy Giuliani's firm, Bracewell Giuliani, according to court documents examined by TPMmuckraker.
Bracewell Giuliani Attorney Carol Elder Bruce, a distinguished white collar litigator, is listed as counsel in two detainee habeas cases, EL-MASHAD et al v. BUSH et al and ALLADEEN et al v. BUSH et al. Both are in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.
El-Mashad, an Egyptian national who was captured near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in late 2001, was released to Albania late last month.

Uh, does not track. Rudy isn’t the Attorney General of the United States.
Don’t expect a Paultard to grasp that subtle difference.
The author fails to perceive the difference between DOJ appointees with questionable loyalties regarding our enemies in a time of war and a private citizen.
Wow, TPM sure is dense. When did a private lawyer suddenly represent the USA re the office of the attorney general.
Just a way to take a dig at Liz Cheney.
I’m good with it. Since I don’t think that terrorist detainees should be anywhere involved in civilian courts, I’m fine with ripping Rudy McRomney on this.
The next left-wing Democrat these fraud-libertarian, truther fellow-travelers go after will be the first.
Well, if Rudy was the AG and appointed his law associates to positions in the Justice Department, I’d assume she’d have the same reaction.
It’d be idiotic to attack him for that. John Adams represented the British soldiers involved in the Bostion Massacre. Nothing weird about a lawyer, with a wide variety of clients taking on a reprehensible one sometimes. It only bugs me when someone makes a career of seeking out people trying to destroy our nation. Or when they cross the line like that woman lawyer who was passing info from detainees to al quaeda.
Rudy might be a poor choice for repub pres for a some very valid reasons, but it’s flat wrong to cast him as in bed with islamic terror.
No one said they should not be represented. They said it’s a dumb idea to have attorneys who represented terrorists in the Department of Justice, working under and formulating U.S. policy on prosecuting terrorists.
That is because libertarians and leftists are on the same team. Libertarians and the Ron Paul campaign workers financed by Google were a significant factor in getting Prince Barack elected in 2008 and, be certain they are working on a second term for him. They send infiltrators into Republican clubs, are a heavy influence in Tea Parties (pushing for 3rd party candidates) and flood the internet attacking the best of the GOP. They have been at work on this forum for quite some time, some masqueraded as "true conservatives."
When do the PaulBots condemn Ron Paul for supporting Marxist
Adam Kokesh for Congress and who is also backed by Michael Moore and every other anti war Marxist.
Changing the subject is the first sign that somebody has a weak argument.
Fortune Cookie slogans are the first sign of not being able to face the truth.
