    Exactly. For one thing, we need the prosecutors in federal DOJ to be top notch. They have to work closely with the federal law enforcement agencies, sharing sensitive information on cases. They need to have a strong prosecution background. They need to be the best of the best.

    Is this seriously the best we can do???

    Remember, Holder is a defense attorney from the one law firm with the most lawyers who have defended terrorists in the United States.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    For the record, I like Eric Holder. Before he worked for a private firm, he had a long and distinguished career at main Justice.

    This is what I agree with:

    His aim, he wrote, was to push for Justice to release their names and to raise the question of whether former pro bono lawyers for terrorists should be working on detainee policy for the Justice Department.
    I don't believe that detainee lawyers should be drafting detainee policy.

    Ahhhh, I can tell that those of you who are arguing this point do not understand the advantages that hiring someone who was once on the other side has in these kind of circumstances.

    It goes both ways. Many prosecutors go on to be defense lawyers and vice versa. These lawyers have a unique perspective.

    I could switch sides in my job and make a killing. I just choose not to.

    These lawyers likely are top notch. The fact that Hamdan won his case in the Supreme Court--jeez, who wouldn't want that lawyer representing Hamdan on our side? He now has an understanding of the mentality of these terrorists and the arguments that terrorists will make.

    On the other hand, is he going to have a specific viewpoint on the issues that he is likely to attempt to encode into policy?

    Here's one of my biases...I have an engrained distrust of defense attorneys.

    Let's hope you never need to hire one.

    Trust me, you're preaching to the choir. I could never be a defense attorney because my conscience wouldn't be able to stand it. Ever.

    I see your point. I'm just not worried that this raises safety concerns for the US.
