Skip to comments.Gitmo Lawyer Julia Tarver Mason: Aiding, Abetting … and Not Talking
Posted on 03/17/2010 3:21:08 AM PDT by Michael van der Galien
Yesterday morning, I had an encounter on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. with Julia Tarver Mason a lawyer who represents several accused terrorists.
I found that Ms. Mason is more willing to speak with terrorists then reporters.
My interest in Ms. Mason began two nights ago, when I read the investigative piece by Debra Burlingame and Thomas Joscelyn in the Wall Street Journal regarding 400 American lawyers from high priced law firms who have volunteered their time to personally wage lawfare on behalf of enemy combatants held at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. One of the premier firms involved is Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, which boasted in 2007: Paul, Weiss achieves more victories for Guantanamo detainees. Ms. Julia Tarver Mason is a partner in the firm.
In 2006, Mason was banned from Guantanamo Bay by the base commander and the U.S. Department of Justice for secretly passing on anti-American propaganda and operational detention details to her client.
This client was Majeed Abdullah Al Joudi. Al Joudi, a Saudi member of the Taliban and al-Qaeda, was captured in Afghanistan in 2001.
