The criticism and shrill demagoguery of Keep America Safe would denigrate not only these principles but fundamentally undermine due process of law. These partisan attacks are misplaced, gratuitous and weaken our democratic ideals. The identities of the lawyers are sought to embarrass and demonize them personally and professionally, to try to dishonor them. It is an effort to intimidate other lawyers from honoring their professional responsibility.THIS IS A STRAW MAN AND A SLEIGHT OF HAND MISDIRECTION.
The day when scare mongers can intimidate lawyers into not doing their jobs is a day in which liberty is threatened. The justice of a society is measured not by how it treats its best, but how it treats its worst.
THE ISSUE IS NOT WHETHER LAWYERS SHOULD TAKE ON EVIL CLIENTS. OR WHETHER THEY BECOME "DEMONIZED".
THE ISSUE IS, SHOULD THE US GOVERNMENT AND THE DOJ HIRE LAWYERS WHO DEFENDED OUR ENEMIES AT A TIME OF WAR.
NO ONE WANTS THESE LAWYERS DISBARRED.
ALL WE CONSERVATIVES WANT IS FULL DISCLOSURE SO THAT THE PUBLIC CAN SEE WHO OBAMA WANTS RUNNING HIS DOJ.
THEN, FULLY INFORMED, THE PUBLIC CAN DECIDE IF THEY THINKS IT'S A GOOD IDEA FOR OUR DOJ TO BE RUN BY FOLKS WHO DEFENDED OUR ENEMIES.
OBAMA AND HOLDER WANTED THIS INFORMATION TO BE WITHHELD FROM THE PUBLIC.
THAT'S VERY INCRIMINATING, AND IT ALSO PROVES THAT THEY AGREE THAT THE PUBLIC IS OPPOSED TO HAVING OUR DOJ RUN BY OUR ENEMIES' LAWYERS.
IN A DEMOCRACY, THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE IS NOT A TRIVIAL MATTER; IT IS THE WHOLE BALL OF WAX.
AND NOW IT APPEARS THAT HOLDER DELIBERATELY MISLED THE CONGRESS DURING HIS SENATE CONFIRMATION HEARINGS, AND "NEGLECTED" TO TELL THEM HE HAD FILED A SCOTUS BRIEF ON BEHALF OF OUR ENEMIES AT GITMO.
FOR HIS DELIBERATE OBFUSCATION OF THIS MATTER, HOLDER SHOULD RESIGN OR BE IMPEACHED.
