Yaser Hamdi Judge Speaks Out

This interview with Yaser Hamdi judge Robert Doumar is very well-worth reading, particularly for his thoughts on the Government's actions in the case.

Doumar still wonders whether Hamdi is telling the whole story. “There’s no question that Hamdi was accompanying the Taliban, nor did he deny accompanying the Taliban,” he said. Still, he bristles at the thought of the government stripping citizens of their basic constitutional right to access the courts. “We would be destroying the very foundation of our society,” Doumar said.

“They were trying to set a precedent that would have given them unlimited power,” he added. “And that’s a scary prospect.”
