Allahu Akbar! Obama promotes American Taliban lawyer to #3 spot at DOJ
Kind of odd. No press coverage of this. Ok, I’m being sarcastic, but doesn’t anyone else find it odd that Obama promotes American Taliban lawyer for John Walker Lindh to the number 3 spot at the Department of (in)Justice?
The Obama administration appointee at the center of the debate is Tony West, a longtime Justice Department lawyer who received national attention for his aggressive defense of John Walker Lindh, the so-called American Taliban who is currently serving 20-years in prison for colluding with al Qaeda in Afghanistan and taking up arms against U.S. troops.
West did not require Senate approval.
