National Lawyer Guild--Defenders of Terrorists?
Here is an excerpt of an email I received from the San Diego chapter of United for Peace and Justice. ( I am on a number of local leftists' email lists to keep updated on their activities.) "The Guild has a long history of representing individuals whom the government has deemed a threat to national security, including helping expose illegal FBI and CIA surveillance, infiltration and disruption tactics (COINTELPRO) that the U.S. Senate "Church Commission" hearings detailed in 1975-76 and that led to enactment of the Freedom of Information Act and other limitations on federal investigative power." One has to wonder what makes them so proud of defending national security threats. Congress once called the NLG a "communist" organization. I will do my own investigation and present the results on this blog sometime in the near future.
