    West is specifically charged with crafting U.S. policy on Guantanamo detainees. How fucked is this?

    So I suppose someone who knows nothing about the new legal frontier of the war on terror would be better? You almost make it sound like he was a terrorist sympathizer by daring to act as a defense lawyer in these cases.

    I used to feel that way about some attorneys, until it was explained that the prosecution is not entitled to their own set of facts.

    How many cases have you heard of prosecution misconduct, and I will leave it there.

    So now a defense attorney is not allowed to further their career?
