Gitmo Lawyers do Clients No Favors

Check out Washington Post writer Peter Finn’s excellent piece comparing the relatively safe and humane treatment high profile detainees receive at Guantanamo to what they will face if relocated to a US maximum security prison.

In many cases it appears that ACLU, Center for Constitutional Rights, and other representatives distrust the US military so much that they have sacrificed client’s rights to speedy process by endless legal delays of military commission process.

Now, so anxious to get detainee clients out of Gitmo, they are willingly putting them in a much more onerous place – Florence Max is cited in the article.

One must question: is all this legal hyper-activism really in their client’s interests? Or is it a reflection of a political agenda on the part of the attorneys involved?
