If You Can Read This, Thank A Lawyer

Digby has a great post about the United States Navy lawyers who opposed the Bush Admnistration and fought for the rule of law.

It's rather depressing that it's come to this, but we live in times where an 86-year-old moderate Republican is one of the few people who can protect this country from limitless criminal power grabs by the Administration.

(Yes, the title is intended somewhat facetiously: Abu Gonzales, David Addington and John Yoo are also attorneys.)

(By the way, C-SPAN is running audio of the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld oral argument at 7:00 p.m. Eastern today, and interviewed Lt. Cmdr. Swift earlier today.)

Update (7/2): Lt. Cmdr. Swift's name corrected, per comments. My apologies to Lt. Cmdr. Swift.
