The First Thing We Do, Let’s Kill All The Lawyers


Liz Cheney wants AG Holder to name Justice Department attorneys who represented terrorists. Here’s the story in Politico.

KSM Trial


Now that Holder has inflicted Khalid Shaikh Mohammed on the American criminal justice system we’re reminded why the military tribunals were set up in the first place – to protect the criminal justice system.

KSM was water-boarded 130 times to get information, not a conviction.

Holder is confident he can get a conviction and he wants the world to see that “we need not cower in the face of an enemy”.

If Holder is right, the world will see an American legal system convict a man who was denied a lawyer, not read his rights, tortured into a confession (according to the president of the United States), and prejudged by the president and his attorney general. Holder added that if KSM isn’t convicted he still won’t go free and Obama agrees.

Some showcase for our legal system.

Pelosi Briefs


The Speaker of the House says CIA lied to her. The Chief of Central Intelligence says that’s a lie.

Thanks for the Memos

Obama said there would be no prosecutions. That was before he said there might be, but only for lawyers – and who among us is against prosecuting lawyers? Cheney says Obama left out the memos that show “harsh interrogation” kept the country safe from more 9/11 style attacks. Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi says memos lie.

Overboard on Waterboard


Politico says Pelosi didn’t object to waterboarding. Pelosi: “Flat out, they never briefed us that this was happening.” The Washington Post refreshed her memory by roughing her up a bit in print with this story.
