The Al-Qaeda-7 revealed

About two weeks ago I told you about how Eric Holder had 9 attorneys at the DoJ who had previously advocated for terrorist detainees. At the time Holder only named two names but kept the other seven unknown.  In response, the Liz Cheney backed group Keep America Safe released the blistering ad below.


It appears that the ad has been rather effective, because today Holder released the remaining seven names (i.e. The Al-Qaeda 7).

Jonathan Cedarbaum- now an official with the Office of Legal Counsel
Eric Columbus- Senior counsel in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General
Karl Thompson- Office of Legal Counsel
Joseph Guerra- Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General at the Justice Department
Tali Farhadian- now an official in the Office of the Attorney General
Beth Brinkmann- now Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Justice Department’s Civil Division
Tony West- the Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Civil Division 

Tony West represented The American Taliban John Walker Lindh for several years. Read the full article at Fox to see what each of the seven were involved in. What is still not known is if these seven attorneys are currently working on detainee issues at the DoJ.

I remember when I was a liberal and thought these attorneys were the most giving, selfless people ever. (HA!)

Thought it was funny that tonight on the O'Reilly Factor, Bill cracked up laughing at the term "The Al Qaeda 7". It does seem a little ridiculous. Thought it was also funny that the White House sent The Factor the list when they got wind that Liz Cheney was going to be on...? Or at least that was implied tonight. Hilarious.
