Eric Holder's Firm May Have Represented Undie Bomber Mastermind Before His Release
The leaders of the Detroit undie bomber’s Al-Qaeda group are Gitmo Grads and may have been represented by Eric Holder’s firm before their release.
Two Gitmo grads rehabilitated in Saudi Arabia rejoined the jihad and made a movie earlier this year.

The two set up their base in Yemen.
This week Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, based in Yemen, claimed responsibility for Friday’s attempted bombing of a Delta Airlines plane as it approached Detroit on a flight from Amsterdam with almost 300 people on board. The terror group released its message on several Al-Qaeda-linked websites. Two former Gitmo grads lead this Al-Qaeda organization in Yemen.
There are questions on whether Eric Holder’s former law firm represented these Al-Qaeda leaders in Yemen who were the masterminds behind the attempted Christmas plane bombing.
Jammie Wearing Fool reported this from Pipeline News that Holder’s law firm may have represented the former Gitmo detainees who are Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula leaders.
There is an additional and intriguing angle involving Yemen, creating a confluence between, that country, Ft. Hood and the Obama administration, in that U.S. AG Holder’s former law firm, Covington & Burling, represented a number of Yemeni detainees who are/were being held in GITMO.
It was meddling by committed lefty attorneys which made military prosecution of the GITMO detainees so difficult. Relentless pressure applied by these advocates is what ultimately led to the Hamden decision [Hamden vs. Rumsfeld, 548 U.S. 557, 2006] in which the military tribunal system established by the Bush administration – relying upon long historical precedent – was overturned on a 5-3 Supreme Court decision, which for the first time in American history applied principles codified in the Geneva Accords to terrorists to which Geneva was long understood not to apply.
As we noted in a February piece [Former Partner Of Eric Holder’s Law Firm Represents Cole Bomber And 14 Other GITMO Detainees, http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=holder1id=2.9.09% 2Ehtm] the involvement in this process by Holder’s old law firm was substantial.
After a year in office we all know that Barack Obama is the most radical anti-American president in US history.
But the fact that his Attorney General’s former firm may have represented Al-Qaeda killers who are now planning attacks against innocent Americans takes it to a whole new level.
