A lawyer who came to prominence for his full-throated defense of a subsequently convicted terrorist was quietly promoted to the No. 3 slot at the Department of Justice last month, a post that puts him in charge of the administration’s policy regarding Guantanamo Bay detainees.

He may have defended the Taliban (that's what lawyers do) but he's not technically a member.

At least I hope not.

You're posting on the same website as a US soldier who tried to betray his troops to Al queda, but you're not technically a member of al queda....
