Mark Levin stands with Keep America Safe and disputes “the group of leading conservative lawyers and policy experts denouncing as “shameful” Republican attacks on lawyers who came to the Obama Justice Department after representing suspected terrorists.”
“The isn’t the Boston Massacre. You have people in the position of defending this nation at the highest levels of the Justice Department who have represented the enemy, and their belief systems have clearly affected national security policy. … And in some cases, these lawyers were not just representing clients, they went out and found them, sought them out. They considered them some of the most important cases they ever had. “Due process rights for the enemy? Absolutely. Civilian justice for the enemy? Absolutely.” Now they’re in government making the same exact decisions except they are setting policy. … Ben Smith at Politico, why don’t you make a list of some lawyers like me, former Chief of Staff to Attorney General Meese; I side with Liz Cheney and Debra Burlingame and Keep America Safe.”
Here is the complete audio of Mark on this from last night:
On February 26, 2010, Mark Levin cited a factual account of the Boston Massacre and John Adams’ truly noble role in its aftermath. Mark added:
“[T]hese things get used to distort current events. … The Boston Massacre had nothing to do with overthrowing the United States — it was a tragedy and John Adams did not seek as his goal to confer special rights on people who were plotting to destroy American society through any means possible.”
I offer Mark’s commentary as further evidence that to cite John Adams as a comparable example to the allegedly altruistic work of the ‘Al Qaeda Seven‘ (among others) fractures American history. Worse, it unwittingly lends credibility to the ACLU’s vile use of that Founding Father and a great patriot’s name in their insidious attempt to undermine our national security and to criminalize America’s use of military force in the Nation’s defense.
“If lawyers choose to volunteer their services to the enemy in wartime, they are on the wrong side of that fault line, and no one should feel reluctant to say so.” — Andrew McCarthy
“If not for the vigilant work of Keep America Safe, the corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder’s national security stone wall on DOJ’s terror lawyers would still be standing. Asking politely, in respectful tones with bowed heads and stooped spines, did not get the DOJ to cough up the names.” — Michelle Malkin
