jaundiced justice

'The Al Qaeda Seven' matter a great deal.

Lawyers of all political stripes are complaining about Liz Cheney because she demanded the identities of the seven Justice Department lawyers who defended al Qaeda terrorists on their own time, be made public.

The Justice Department should not employ attorneys with political axes to grind.  (Above, Neal Katyal, now at the Justice Department, won a 2006 case for a Guantanamo detainee in Supreme Court.) But in the Obama administration we have an Attorney General in Eric Holder who has been grinding his axe for the past 14 months.

Leftists are busy trying to spin this into a debate about defending the accused, but it's not about that. It's about current Justice Department attorneys who rushed to defend sworn enemies of the United States of America.

Here's the key thing Liberals won't talk about: There is no right to counsel in habeas corpus cases.

Cheney, just like her father, is right.
