I think with a terrorist suing them, Holder saw a conflict of interest.

Only half-kidding. I wonder if the islamicist is one of the ones someone on Holders staff represented.

The problem arises in part from the fact that many of the DOJ lawyers now setting legal policy for the war on terror previously waged lawfare against the War on Terror during W’s administration, Eric Holder among them. The lawyers now representing us against the enemy formerly represented the enemy against us on related matters. It’s actually scandalous, but the issue has gotten very limited traction. Various “recusals” have been required from these guys, but given the political corruption of DOJ under Holder, it’s a joke.

Rumsfeld’s private lawyers, David Rivkin and Lee Casey, are the best lawyers in America for this case. He’s got the dream team, and is much better off with them than with conflicted former lawyers for terrorists at DOJ driving him into the ditch.

For all we know, Rumsfeld’s private counsel wanted them off the case and provoked this withdrawal by DOJ.

Hasn't Padilla been defended by Holder's law firm...???
