Obama Endorsed by Lawyers for Gitmo Detainees

Posted on February 5, 2008. Filed under: Muslim Invasion, Politicians, Politics, Terrorism |

Well, well, well, we’re not surprised, are we? The lawyers, who want to help the very people who want us dead, support Obama. Hmmm…Obama will do everything he can to tear down this country while at the same time doing everything he can to help our enemies. I do not understand how any person who loves this country would vote for him. As I stated before, a vote for Obama is a vote FOR communism/socialism and a vote AGAINST a free and safe America!!!

More than 80 attorneys who have been offering free-of-charge legal services to Guantánamo detainees issued a statement Monday supporting Democrat Barack [Hussein] Obama’s presidential bid.
“We are at a critical point in the presidential campaign, and as lawyers who have been deeply involved in the Guantánamo litigation to preserve the important right to habeas corpus, we are writing to urge you to support Senator Obama,” the lawyers said in an open letter dated Monday.
Lawyers signing it included partners from major U.S. law firms and small-town practitioners as well as Michael Ratner, whose New York Center for Constitutional Rights has for years coordinated legal efforts to provide representation to each of the men held without charge at the offshore prison compound in southeast Cuba…
Lawyers signing the letter included East Coast law school professors, who have visited the U.S. Navy base to defend individual detainees, as well as corporate lawyers for Saudi, Kuwaiti, and Yemeni detainees. None of the lawyers who signed the letter are from Florida.
Also among the signers are Wells Dixon and Gitanjali Gutierrez, the only lawyers so far to meet with a formerly CIA-held “high-value detainee.” Last year, they met with Baltimore-educated captive Majid Khan in a special segregated section of the prison camps. They accuse the U.S. government of subjecting their client to a program of state-sponsored torture.
