It seems that many of the lawyers that represented Guantanamo detainees during the Bush adinistration are now working for the Obama Justice Department. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/o...d-Gitmo-detainees-82504837.html#ixzz0dZXreXQm Holder hasn't revealed Justice Dept lawyers who defended Gitmo detainees By: Byron York Chief Political Correspondent 01/23/10 9:08 AM EST You may remember that more than two months ago, amid the controversy over the Obama administration's decision to grant full American constitutional rights to, and hold a civilian trial for, accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed, Republican Sen. Charles Grassley asked Attorney General Eric Holder about Justice Department lawyers who before joining the Obama/Holder team had represented Guantanamo detainees or worked for groups representing them. Grassley pointed to one high-ranking Obama Justice official who formerly represented Osama bin Laden's driver and another who works on detainee issues despite previous advocacy for detainees. "This prior representation, I think, creates a conflict of interest problem for these individuals," Grassley said, adding, "I want to know more about who is advising you on these decisions." Grassley asked Holder to give the committee "the names of political appointees in your department who represent detainees or who work for organizations advocating on their behalf…the cases or projects that these appointees work with respect to detainee prior to joining the Justice Department…and the cases or projects relating to detainees that have worked on since joining the Justice Department." SNIP Now, two months have passed and the senators have heard nothing.
