Liz Cheney Group Accused of McCarthyism For "Al-Qaeda 7" Ad
The Liz Cheney-backed group Keep America Safe was accused of McCarthyism today for releasing this ad on the the 7 far left Holder Justice Department attorneys who formerly represented Al-Qaeda terrorists:
FOX Nation reported this from Politico:
My colleague Ben Smith has word this morning of a video from the Liz Cheney-backed group Keep America Safe questioning the loyalty of Justice Department attorneys who previously represented Guantanamo detainees.
The video provocatively calls a group of such lawyers whom Attorney General Eric Holder has failed to name despite repeated Republican requests: “The Al Qaeda 7.”
The challenge is prompting outrage from some working on Guantanamo issues.
“This is plainly unacceptable in the United States,” Ken Gude of the Center for American Progress, wrote in an e-mail this morning. “Condemnation is not sufficient. This is pure McCarthyism.”
