Newsweek is reporting that D.C. power attorney Eric Holder is being tapped for Attorney General.
NBC news is now reporting that Holder has accepted the position. Once confirmation comes out from the transition team, I will put him in the Cabinet 44 section.
Via The Washington Independent, here is Holder on the detainees:
“We owe the American people a reckoning. It is our responsibility as citizens to preserve and protect our constitution… Let me be clear: I firmly believe that there is evil in the world, and that we still face grave dangers to our security. But our ability to lead the world in combatting these dangers depends not only on the strength of our military leadership but our moral leadership as well. … To recapture it, we can no longer allow ourselves to be ruled by fear. We must evaluate our policies and our practices in the harsh light of day and steel ourselves to face the world’s dangers in accord with the rule of law.”
Now that’s a view I like!
