What's lower than a lawyer? A BushCorp™ lawyer.

Cully Simpson, deputy assistant secretary of defense (aka BushCorp™'s detainee overseer at Gitmo, transcription courtesy Washington Post):

"Actually you know I think the news story that you're really going to start seeing in the next couple of weeks is this: As a result of a FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] request through a major news organization, somebody asked, 'Who are the lawyers around this country representing detainees down there,' and you know what, it's shocking,"

"I think, quite honestly, when corporate CEOs see that those firms are representing the very terrorists who hit their bottom line back in 2001, those CEOs are going to make those law firms choose between representing terrorists or representing reputable firms, and I think that is going to have major play in the next few weeks. And we want to watch that play out." [Emphasis mine-CK]

Typical tactic from the Bush crime family: Nice little lawfirm ya got there. It'd be a shame if anything happened to it.

Imagine, American lawfirms upholding American legal principals by defending people who have NOT BEEN CONVICTED OF ANYTHING.

Shocking indeed.
