Smack of the day

“…in light of public statements by both you and the President, it is dismayingly clear that, under your leadership, the Justice Department takes the position that a lawyer who in good faith offers legal advice to government policy makers—like the government lawyers who offered good faith advice on interrogation policy—may be subject to investigation and prosecution for the content of that advice, in addition to empty but professionally damaging accusations of ethical misconduct. Given that stance, any prudent lawyer would have to hesitate before offering advice to the government.”

- Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor and senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies in a letter to Eric Holder where he turned down an invite from the Justice Department to participate in a roundtable interrogation “debate”.
