    Over at Pajamas Media, J. Christian Adams lays out the gruesome details of the elevation of Tony West to the No. 3 man at the Justice Department. Adams explains that West (zero relation) and his San Francisco law firm have represented "some of the most radical Islamic terrorist causes, including the American Taliban John Walker Lindh."

    Adams reports that, in his new position, West, who has brought into senior Justice jobs other prominent jihadist defenders, will be overseeing detainee policy at Guantanamo Bay.

    It's either a mad, mad, mad, mad world -- or, as I believe, it all makes perfect sense. We are being taken down from within due to a potent nexus of fear, non-rational thinking, and subversion.

    First, beginning on 9/12/01, the Bush administration effectively outlawed the way public officials may talk and write and ultimately think about Islam by formulating the de facto and, finally, in 2008, the practically de jure lexicon that de-links Islam from its institutional lifeblood, jihad. The effect is to foil all rational approaches to thwarting the Islamic threat. Since President Obama came to office, he has simply, if enthusiastically, taken the Bush policy of de-linking Islam from jihad, both violent and pre-violent, to its logical conclusions.

    Thus we see in 2010, for example, the FBI's National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC) inviting Kifah Mustapha, a known operative of Hamas, a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, to a six-week "citizens' academy" inside the top secret installation...


    Today we see the elevation of a leading member of "the al Qaeda bar" to a position of control over Gitmo policy at the Justice Department.

    The continuum... continues.

    Wow... how about that... an American Citizen has the right to a defense, and you want to demonize the defender... How Constitutional of you.

    There's nothing more annoying than a Ron Paul supporter, unless of course it's a fake Ron Paul supporter.

    If you hate the right to counsel, you hate the American judicial system, and you hate the constitutional principles upon which it's based.

    So where in the Constitution does it say that a defense lawyer that PAULITICIAN doesn't agree with can't be appointed?

    Sounds like a guy who knows a lot about the quasi legal landscape of the war on terror better than most.

    Never said it did. But it is my Constitutional right to disagree with the appointment.

    Who knows for sure about Lindh, seems to go both ways - 20 years might be right but the "without possibility of parole" makes the sentence seem politically motivated considering the circumstances.

    West seems a counter to the military empowerment endorsed by the previous Administration and a logical promotion to restore / insure civil rights at the Department of "Justice".
