In Case you Haven’t Heard…


…it’s Mukasey, the former chief judge of the Southern District of New York and partner at Patterson Belknap someone and someone. He most recently made waves with an August Wall Street Journal op-ed in which he (much boiled down here) said that US courts were not the proper fora to deliberate about punishing terrorists, and that by hearing cases about alleged terrorists in US courts, we are helping get information to bin Laden et al.

Schumer has in the past come out strongly in support of Mukasey, but is now backpedaling a bit (if you trust the NY Sun). Frankly, the fact that he is a judicial adviser to Giuliani is enough to scare me off.
