In today's Wall Street Journal there's a great column -- "Gitmo's Indefensible Lawyers" -- that notes "Legal counsel to some of the detainees went far beyond vigorous representation of their clients", then rightly asks, "Doesn't the public have a right to know?"
Also, former "blind shiek" prosecutor ['93 WTC bombing] Andrew McCarthy deems the sharing of photos of CIA interrogators with Gitmo detainees BY LEGAL COUNSEL [as discussed in the above article] "a wartime felony violation". As I read the above article this morning in the dead-tree version of the Journal I quickly came to the same ... conclusion -- and I'm not even an attorney. The whole saga just wreaks. And what would the reaction have been had John Ashcroft staffed the Civil Rights Division with a lot of folks who had represented white supremacists?
