Come clean, Mr. Holder
New York Post

Whose side is the Justice Department on: America's -- or the terrorists'?
It's just insane that a lawyer who defended Osama bin Laden's driver and bodyguard -- and who sought constitutional rights for terrorists -- could be one of the Obama administration's top legal officials.
But there's Neal Katyal, occupying a top perch at the Justice Department as the principal deputy solicitor general.
Then there's Jennifer Daskal -- who just months ago was an anti-Guantanamo activist. Now she's in Justice's National Security Division -- working on detainee issues.
Talk about conflicts of interest.
All kinds of rules prohibit government employees from influencing policy to the benefit of their previous employers. If Katyal, Daskal and other conflicted Justice lawyers had worked for corporations, they'd almost certainly be subject to these regulations.
Read the rest here.
At some point Attorney General Holder will have to answer to Congress who is making key decisions on handling terrorists and explain any conflict of interest.
Until he does, the suspicion only grows that key decisions are being made by people who not only have a conflict of interest but show favor towards protecting the terrorists at the expense of the security of the American people!
