Lawyer Who Defended GITMO Detainees Now In Charge of GITMO Policy

J. Christian Adams, Obama Justice Department Black Panther case whistleblower and author of Injustice was on Fox and Friends over the weekend with some alarming news.

The very same lawyer who has adamantly defended GITMO detainees, has now been appointed to one of the highest positions within the Department of Justice to oversee GITMO policy.

..."The most dangerous thing is that West is overseeing Gitmo policy. It's not that he's just some guy at the Justice Department licking envelopes," Adams told Fox News on Sunday.

Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, noted that in Holder's announcement of West's promotion, he "conveniently omitted" West's role as the defense attorney for convicted Al Qaeda terrorist John Walker Lindh, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence after being captured in Afghanistan in 2001 while fighting with the Taliban.

This is a despicable and outrageous situation we are in with obama as president. Thanks to the mainstream media, most people will never hear about this.
