DOJ Lawyers Who Represented Terrorism Suspects Detainees Are Identified
Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010
Fox News has identified the seven anonymous Justice Department lawyers who previously represented Guantánamo detainees or terrorism suspects.
Justice Department spokesman Matthew A. Miller confirmed the names to Fox News Mike Levine, but did not say whether any of the seven previously anonymous lawyers now work on issues related to Guantánamo detainees.
Each of the nine people referenced in the letter filed legal briefs that are available by using something as simple as Google, Miller told Fox News. We will not participate in an attempt to drag peoples names through the mud for political purposes.
Miller said politics has overtaken facts and reality in the battle over the lawyers identities. (Full statement below)
The current Justice Department employees who previously represented Guantánamo detainees or terrorism suspects are:
Tony West, the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division.
Jonathan Cedarbaum, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
Eric Columbus, senior counsel in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General.
Karl Thompson, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
Joseph Guerra, Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General.
Tali Farhadian, an official in the Office of the Attorney General.
Beth Brinkmann, Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Civil Division.
Two other DOJ lawyers Principal Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal and National Security Division Attorney Jennifer Daskal also formerly represented detainees, but their identities had already been known.
In response to the DOJ confirmation, Keep America Safe spokesman Aaron Harison said the organization still wants information on which of the lawyers works on detainee issues within the DOJ.
The American people have a right to know whether lawyers who voluntarily flocked to Guantanamo to take up the cause of the terrorists are currently working on detainee issues in President Obamas Justice Department, Harison said. (Full statement below)
