(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Joe Biden’s nominee to sit on the Supreme Court, reportedly went above and beyond to defend terror suspects during his time as a federal public defender. Reports suggest that she used her position not just to defend terror suspects but also to criticize the United States government for its efforts to prevent terrorism.
Jackson, who currently serves as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, is expected to replace retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the court. After the president announced her as his nominee on Friday, reports have flooded in and revealed a history of far-left radicalism and advocacy for ideas that most Americans find abhorrent.
This latest example involves her defense of prisoners detained at the Guantanamo Bay military prison. These enemy combatants were detained over their alleged involvement in a range of terror activities, including the September 11 attacks in Virginia and New York in 2001.
Just The News reports how Jackson was defended Khiali-Gul, who was accused of being a Taliban intelligence officer in charge of a cell that intended to attack an American base in Afghanistan back in 2002. He is also believed to have met with the late Osama bin laden in November a year earlier. The U.S. government said that if Gul was ever released, they expected him to seek out his old associates and re-engage in hostile activities against the United States.
While representing Gul, however, Jackson did more than just defend her client. Instead, she accused the United States government of torturing prisoners and slammed George W. Bush’s War on Terror. She claimed that Gul was treated inhumanely while in Guantanamo Bay.
“Many of the most egregious interrogation techniques used in the Abu Ghraib detention center and other detention facilities in Iraq — such as the use of aggressive dogs to intimidate detainees, sexual humiliation, stress positions, and sensory deprivation — were pioneered at Guantanamo,” she said in a court filing in 2005.
Does that sound like she was just doing her job as a public defender, or does it seem more like she saw an opportunity to defend a terrorist and attack Republicans in the process?
