With the Obama Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holderâ€™s direction, Americans are learning what really happens when law-enforcement power is co-opted by politics.
In this eye-popping Broadside, Andrew C. McCarthy shows that the biggest beneficiaries have been jihadists. For the past eight years, a group of lawyers volunteered their services to Americaâ€™s enemies. Now, the Justice Department is rife with some of those same lawyers as it enhances due process for terrorists and feeds the international Leftâ€™s call for war-crimes charges against President Obamaâ€™s political adversaries. Just consider how the administration has disclosed national defense secrets during wartime or granted the 9/11 mass murderers a civilian trial. The department, moreover, is working to tighten the Democratic Partyâ€™s grip on power, ignoring the Constitution and green-lighting election fraud and abuse.
