    I had not even thought of the second part, but it's actually a pretty good point. Do you know if there is anything really remarkable about the briefs?

    Which is exactly what I said in the first response to this thread. Read plz.

    Nothing that I can tell, other than that they deal with relatively high profile cases.

    edit: Here's the closest thing I could find

    Two former Bush administration officials said the brief’s acknowledgement that accused terrorists could go free if their cases were heard through the normal judicial process contradicted Holder’s public statements justifying the FBI’s reading Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the alleged underwear bomber, his Miranda rights. They also pointed out that Holder had not called the brief to the attention of the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearings.

    “Now that Holder is attorney general, he no longer acknowledges the risks to national security of treating terrorists as criminals,” the two former Bush officials, Bill Burck, a former deputy White House counsel, and Dana Perino, the former White House Press Secretary, wrote. “Holder could never admit that now, of course.”

    That makes it sound a little more problematic, though it's still not exactly a smoking gun.

    it's not a smoking gun

    it's just one more sign of incompetence, dishonesty and a rather extremist bent concerning terrorism

    These hired people in the justice department took on these terrorist defense cases PRO BONO! These are terrorists who do not even have citizens rights to our court system. They're enemy combatants.

    That makes me very, very nervous. Where do these folks' sympathies lie?

    Re: Att'y general failed to give legal briefs to Senate

    they're radical extremists and jihadist-symps

    but they won the last election, they control the senate bigtime

    we're just gonna have to be patient

    i hope you don't live in ny or any of our other big metros

    the admin is doing a whole lot more damage to itself and the party in power than they're gonna do (hopefully) to innocent americans

    everyone sees what's going on

    hang in

    there's something about tv---it's easy to lie on tv once, twice

    it's impossible three times

    americans watch too much tv, they can see thru, always, in time

    it's more about body language than words

    it's undeniably clear WHO ERIC HOLDER IS, briefs or no briefs

    even massachusetts sees

    ask ms coakley

    don't worry about it---we got em

    politically, they are ours

    security wise, that's different, keep your fingers crossed

    Those terrorists were "in" our judicial system. This was begun under Bush. As a defendant they have a right to a quality defense. Our Constitution grants certain rights to anybody in this country, citizen or not. Lawyers who defend such defendants should be applauded, not chastised. If that bothers you just think of them as defending our country, our constitution.

    Calling those criminals "enemy combatants" raises their status to that of a soldier. They are not soldiers. They do not deserve that level of respect. Calling them enemy combatants was Bush-Cheeney wordsmithing to try to put terrorists into military tribunals. It didn't work.

    We didn't look at Timothy McVeigh as an enemy combatant. We tried him as a criminal. What he did was just as bad as what these "terrorists" are doing, if not worse.

    That makes me very, very nervous. Where do these folks' sympathies lie?
    If you educate yourself with the bigger picture it might help you to feel better about those who defend your country knowing that they will win no medals for their trouble.
