Obama Slides Taliban Lawyer Into Top Spot At Justice Department
Fox Nation ^ | Sept. 19, 2012

Posted on 09/20/2012 6:05:08 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

A lawyer who came to prominence for his full-throated defense of a subsequently convicted terrorist was quietly promoted to the No. 3 slot at the Department of Justice last month, a post that puts him in charge of the administration’s policy regarding Guantanamo Bay detainees.

The move has raised red flags on Capitol Hill and elsewhere among national security stalwarts who argue that the promotion could imperil the country’s longstanding war on terrorism.

Sounds like a riveting campaign commercial. Is Willard paying attention?

And where is the history on Eric “The Coward” Withholder on his previous job in a law firm that defended Gitmo detainees prior to getting his job at the Just Us Department?

Mitt needs to clean house. Don't do a pansy waist Bush try to make nice effort.

We need to get the communist/socialist/progressives out and into unemployment lines.

Everyone will be safe. Just assume the position as ordered and let the DHS perverts take naked pictures of you and rub their hands all over you at the airports.

They have our vets under surveillance so they won't be yapping extremism about the jihadists and the constitution.

The military is prepared to engage in civil war with those dangerous grannies in the Tea Party.

Move along...

Lynne Stewart is still not available so I guess they had to settle for their second choice.

there should be a list of people associated with Hamas, Muslim brotherhood, AQ, etc... appointed by 0bama... that should be ejected on day one of a Romney presidency

there should also be a list of people to be charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, election fraud, and/or treason

Simply amazing shit taint it bitt. Obama studied well under Alinsky. He and his masters, sub handlers and so many down through the depths of the current Administration know exactly how to play very dangerous games.
I'm throughly convinced in all humility. They literally play games like growing children to see what they think they can get away with that will benefit them personally as well as their schooled movement(s), verse having any credentials to serve this nation in good will as part of the Executive Branch.
I'm on the last hour of a there hour plus CSPAN House of Representative DOJ's Inspector General Testifies on "Fast and Furious" Report, to the Issa Committee.
The Demorats for the most part have been totally subdued at this point.

Why would anyone be surprised that Obama named a former Taliban member’s lawyer as the #3 in the Justice Dept.? As recently as a year ago, the #3 person in the Justice Dept. (and #2 on an acting basis) was Neal Katyal, who had become famous by acting as an al Qaeda member’s lawyer.

I will stand with them.

My Muslim faith.

America is no longer a Christian nation.

NASA for Muslim outreach.

Ft. Hood jihadi massacre by Nidal Hassan an act of workplace violence.

Observes all Muslim holidays and no Christian holidays.

Arms Mexican narcoterrorists to disarm American citizens.

Will be flexible with Vladimir Putin but stonewalls Republicans in Congress.

Is the son of Malcolm X and a Lebanese daughter of an Arabist professor of American University of Beirut.

Zionists will no longer be in the driver seat--

--that is, time for David Letterman, asshat, but no time for Benjamin Netanyahu prime minister of former ally Israel.

It's midnight. Satan is naked and laughing his cherry red ass off at Americans.

Vote him out November 6 or the curtain comes down on the Late Great American Experiment.

Silence on Holder’s firm letting the Gitmo guy go off and murder in Libya. Silence on Ft Hood, silence on the embassy, silence on Talibunnie as number three in the DOJ? If this guy is not partial to muzzards then Pinocchio has no nose.
