Another controversial appointment has been made by Attorney General Eric Holder. This time his appointment to the number 3 post at the Department of Justice is raising important questions.
Tony West served as assistant attorney general for the Civil Division and has now been named to acting associate attorney general.
What you may not know, though, is that West represented convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh, who fought on behalf of the Taliban and aided Al Qaeda. He’s now serving a 20-year prison sentence after being captured in Afghanistan in 2001. And, what’s more, not only did West represent Lindh, but his firm was also involved in two other defense cases for terrorists working against the U.S.
