    A group that includes leading conservative lawyers and policy experts, former Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr and several senior officials of the last Bush administration is denouncing as “shameful” Republican attacks on lawyers who came to the Obama Justice Department after representing suspected terrorists.

    Senate Republicans have demanded details of the lawyers' past work and Liz Cheney’s group “Keep America Safe” has questioned their “values." A drumbeat of Republican criticism forced the Justice Department reluctantly to identify seven of them last week. But the harshness of the criticism – Keep America Safe labeled a group of them the “Al Qaeda Seven” — has provoked a backlash from across the legal establishment.

    “We consider these attacks both unjust to the individuals in question and destructive of any attempt to build lasting mechanisms for counterterrorism adjudications,” wrote the 19 lawyers whose names were attached to the statement as of early Monday.

    The statement cited John Adams’s defense of British soldiers charged in the Boston Massacre to argue that “zealous representation of unpopular clients” is an important American tradition.

    Tried to tell them (GOP) that she was as crazy as her dad. Apparently mental illness runs in families.

    Yet, they will still back her when the time comes. Wait for it.

    I've never known one Neocon who isn't crazy. I'm not sure how the Cheney family has flown under the radar for so long but it looks like something meaningful is going to be done with them at the hands of their own party.

    She's entitled to her opinion no? This is still America? The current Socialists in power haven't destroyed us yet have they? She gave her opinion and they gave theirs. That's what America is all about. Now let the people decide. Sounds about right.

    Certainly, and they factually pointed out that her opinion was stupid.

    Yes well we all know what the say about opinions right? Liz Cheney gave hers and they gave theirs. That's what America is about. Now the People can decide for themselves who they agree with.

    Most people that have any clue whatsoever would be backing the scolding. If they don't more than likely they have no idea what the heck they are basing ther opinion on.

    Again,we all know what they say about opinions right? Let everyone express their opinions and then let the People decide who they agree with. That's America. Those who scolded Cheney are entitled to their opinions just like those who agree with Cheney are as well. It is what it is. The woman is certainly entitled to her beliefs.

    Sure she is. But that doesn't mean she isn't as crazy as hell like her dad.
